Registration Opens March 11
Every participant brings us a step closer to a future without breast cancer
Registration for the 23rd Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure opens on March 11, 2014. The CIBC Run for the Cure is Canada's largest single day, community-driven, fundraising event in support of breast cancer research, health education and advocacy programs.
This is your chance to join a national movement on October 5, 2014, and run, walk, or dance your way through a 1k or 5k course to honour those affected by breast cancer and to support the cause. If you're a natural leader, you can
even take the reins and register to be a Team Captain, recruiting team members, inspiring them along the way, and then fully appreciating the impact your team has made on Run day. It's an experience unlike any other.
Every dollar each of our participants have helped raise for this event has allowed Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - Ontario Region to invest over $100 million in more than 650 projects. Some of these research projects are opening the doors to new treatment strategies like that of CBCF-funded researchers Dr. Raymond Reilly and Dr. Jean-Philllipe Pignol who are using nanotechnology - engineering at the molecular level - to develop a single, one-hour procedure that replaces traditional radiation therapy, and hopefully on day, surgery and other treatments.
New this year, our website has been refreshed to offer visitors a more user-friendly experience. This includes improved registration and donation functions, as well as being mobile-optimized so you can easily view it on your Smartphone. We invite you to take a look.
