Nearly 100,000 Canadians in 63 communities across Canada participated in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, raising an estimated $17 million 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 the one in nine Canadian women affected by breast cancer through prevention, treatment and advances in patient care.
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, including support from our clients and employees, we are committed to creating a future without breast cancer.”
