CIBC is a committed member of the Canadian Cancer Society's corporate family. Lending its support to both national and local initiatives, CIBC continues to be a leader in investing in research, treatment and support programs to those affected by cancer.
Through their unwavering support over the past 20-plus years, CIBC and its employees have helped us grow the CIBC Run for the Cure into the largest single- day, volunteer-led event dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer in Canada and a gold standard for cause partnerships.
CIBC’s involvement started at a grassroots level in support of a colleague with breast cancer. Recognizing the passion its employees had for this cause, CIBC became title sponsor in 1997. Since then, CIBC clients, employees, their families and friends have raised nearly $452 million through pledges, fundraising efforts and events.
Each year, 15,000 members of Team CIBC led by a group of passionate volunteer ’Run Champions‘ join thousands of Canadians in helping to create a future without breast cancer through their participation and volunteering in the CIBC Run for the Cure in over 60 communities across Canada.
Like the Canadian Cancer Society, CIBC is looking forward to Sunday, October 1, 2017 when thousands of Canadians, CIBC employees, their families and friends will take part in the 26th annual CIBC Run for the Cure.
