We can't stop now
We would like to introduce you to the three families of our 2014 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure campaign. These families are all participants in the CIBC Run for the Cure and have been affected by breast cancer. Their stories are inspiring and show us that we’re closer to a future without breast cancer, but we can’t stop now.
Nalie Agustin, Quebec
Nalie, only 25 years old, has recently finished her breast cancer treatment. She participated in the CIBC Run for the Cure last year with a team of 120 members – many part of her large, supportive family - and raised close to $30,000! Nalie's story.
Rupinder Kang, Vancouver
Rupinder is married with three young children and was diagnosed with breast cancer in her thirties. She sat on the Vancouver Run Committee and now continues to participate in the CIBC Run for the Cure on team “Rupinder’s Reason.” Rupinder's story.
Deanette Turner, Moncton
Deanette’s mother passed away from breast cancer 23 years ago. Her family never had the chance to meet her. They have been participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure since it started raising funds in honour of a woman they never met. Deanette's daughter pictured on the left. Deanette's story.
