CIBC Run for the Cure
$132,000 and growing was raised at the 2016 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure in Windsor
Today, over 1000 Changemakers in Windsor participated in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, raising an estimated $132,000 and growing for breast cancer research, education and support programs. With the funds raised, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) will invest in groundbreaking research and programs that improve the lives of those affected by breast cancer through prevention, treatment and advances in patient care.
“With one in nine women expected to develop breast cancer in her lifetime, breast cancer impacts almost every Canadian in some way,” said Lynne Hudson, CEO of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. “It is inspiring and humbling to see so many Canadians come together for the CIBC Run for the Cure to support this cause. I want to thank each and every one of the participants, volunteers, donors and sponsors for making a significant difference in the lives of so many individuals and their families who are touched by breast cancer.”
The CIBC Run for the Cure is a trailblazing partnership between the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, CIBC and communities across Canada that is changing the face of breast cancer. This year’s Run marked CIBC’s 20th year as title sponsor and together with the tens of thousands of participants and supporters across the country has helped remove stigma and create a movement that brings Canadians together in support of friends, family and loved ones who experience breast cancer.
“CIBC is proud to partner with CBCF and thousands of donors, participants and volunteers across the country who for over two decades have helped support innovative research, advances in screening technology and support programs for the estimated 25,000 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year,” says Christina Kramer, CIBC’s Executive Vice-President and its Executive Run Sponsor. “Together with our team of Changemakers, including support from our clients and employees, we are committed to creating a future without breast cancer.”
