CIBC Run for the Cure

Making a difference for the future of others 

Team Laurier VolunteerNow 

Five years ago, to commemorate the passing of his grandmother, Aly Hirji got a group of his students together at Wilfred Laurier Collegiate Institute and started Team Laurier VolunteerNow for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure.  Each year, an amazing team of now 100 students take the reins and participate as Route Monitors, Spirit Squad, and Ask Me volunteers.  And, every year, a new Team Captain leads the charge.  This process allows them to pass on the torch of learning, passion and motiviation of why they do what they do, and to understand the impact they can make on their community as a united team.

Team Laurier VolunteerNow has raised enough awareness at their school that a group of runners get involved with the CIBC Run for the Cure by fundraising.  These fundraisers grow in number each year, as they understand the importance that each dollar raised is invested in breast cancer research that is making a real difference. 

Aly would tell anyone and everyone that "this is a great opportunity to be part of a worthy initiative and cause.  Rain or shine, hail or storm, at the end of the day it's about knowing you've done the most with your time, and that someone is better off because of it.  You have truly helped make a difference for the future of others."
