Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure

Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure

The CIBC Run for the Cure is a 5k or 1k walk or run that raises funds for Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. It is the largest single-day, volunteer-led event in Canada in support of the breast cancer research. The CIBC Run for the Cure will take place on Sunday, October 4, 2015 in more than 60 communities across Canada.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosis in Canadian women, with one in four cancer diagnoses being breast cancer. An estimated 24,400 Canadian women (and 210 Canadian men) were diagnosed in Canada in 2014.

Thanks to events like CIBC Run for the Cure, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) has been able to fund groundbreaking research, health education and advocacy initiatives that have contributed to improvements in early detection through mammography screening, advances in screening technology and improved cancer treatments. As a result, fewer Canadian women are dying from breast cancer today than ever before – since their peak in 1986, breast cancer deaths have decreased by 43 percent.
