How We Painted Canada Pink! (June 23 – June 30)

To celebrate the start of our 100 day countdown (June 23) to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure (September 30), communities across Atlantic Canada PAINTED CANADA PINK!

In Bathurst, they decorated their houses PINK for the week!

Moncton and surrounding cities waved their PINK flag, literally, at City Halls!

Delectable desserts were shared in Fredericton as local restaurants made PINK treats to celebrate the week.

In Halifax, a group of CBCF and CIBC staff went for a PINK walk in crazy costumes and PINKED up the sidewalks with PINK Chalk!

There was a PINK Zumba Flashmob in Corner Brook!

St. John’s celebrated with an awareness breakfast event and radio contest called “Finding Hope.”

Wolfville was busy with their PINK Window Challenge, PINK sidewalk chalk, and a PINK Pooch Dog Walk.

And there were PINK fountains in Moncton, Corner Brook, and across Halifax!

The countdown continues! There are now less than 70 days until the CIBC Run for the Cure! Sign up today to participate! Visit www.cbcf.org.
