CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
CIBC Run for the Cure
Physical distancing is the reality for the foreseeable future, and so we are reimagining the CIBC Run for the Cure. As October 4 approaches, we are developing an exciting virtual experience. Our plans include all the best things about Run Day: Connecting with your teammates, an inspirational opening ceremony, and a high-energy warm-up. As well, you’ll be able to create and customize your own CIBC Run for the Cure avatar, fundraise to unlock rewards, and track your steps through our refreshed app or the Run website. We’ll organize the fun online and you’ll have the option to bring together a small group of family and friends to run or walk around your neighbourhood as part of your at-home celebration.
Watch this space for exciting details about our new way of gathering. Being physically apart won't stop us from coming together. Please sign up, fundraise and join us on Run Day because together, we are a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer.
Now I know that I will help someone with cancer even after I’m gone. It’s a footprint I want to leave behind me.
