The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure could not take place without the support of our caring and community-minded sponsors. It is our privilege to profile CIBC as the event’s Title Sponsor and the full group of National CIBC Run for the Cure Sponsors who contribute so much to the success of this event.
CIBC Celebrated its 16th anniversary as title sponsor of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure in 2012.
Through fundraising events such as the Think Pink® Kick-Off, in-branch promotion of the CIBC Pink Collection™, donations, pledges and in-branch promotions held across Canada, Team CIBC raised $3 million in support of the 2012 CIBC Run for the Cure, an outstanding contribution to further our vision of creating a future without breast cancer.
The Foundation is immensely grateful to CIBC for being part of the event since its earliest years. Team CIBC's dedicated employees continue to make a significant difference year over year.
New Balance continues to champion Canadians across the country who participate in the CIBC Run for the Cure.
New Balance is also pleased to continue their commitment to health and fitness in the role of prevention and survivorship. In celebration of our survivors, New Balance is thrilled to provide the pink survivor t-shirts for the CIBC Run for the Cure, taking place this year on Sunday, October 6, 2013. New Balance is proud to share information to help CIBC Run for the Cure participants learn more about leading active balanced lifestyles. Visit the Survivor section for more updates.
"The support provided by New Balance to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation goes beyond our sponsorship of the CIBC Run for the Cure. We strive to reach out to participants and survivors to share information on the importance of a healthy, balanced, active lifestyle. Key to this effort is our ‘Lace Up for the Cure’ collection, in which each shoe is embroidered with the Foundation logo. Through the program, New Balance Canada contributes up to $40,000 in additional funding annually to the Foundation. We are proud to continue our partnership with the Foundation and to support the breast cancer cause." Nathaly Hotte, Run Champion and Marketing Supervisor, New Balance Canada.
