CIBC Run for the Cure

Leading the way to a future without breast cancer

Top fundraisers bring spirit of the CIBC Run for the Cure to a new level! 

On Sunday, October 5th at the 23rd annual Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, a community of supporters came together to celebrate, remember and hope for a future without breast cancer.

We would like to take this opportunity to recognize and celebrate the passion and dedication a few of these individuals brought to the event this year.  They are our top team and individual fundraisers and we'd like to introduce some of them to you.

Matching donations for a milestone year

This was Janine's 10th year running in memory of her mom, Joan Sumner.  To do something special on this milestone year, for every donation she received of at least $100, she matched that donation with $100 of her own.  With her supporters, she has raised close to $50,000 for breast cancer research over the years.  Close to $8,000 of that was raised this year alone!  Janine ran again this year in Muskoka enjoying the beautiful colours near her cottage on Long Lake.  This was her chance to celebrate the beauty around her and remember her mom and how much she loved fall days on Lake Windermere growing up in Alberta.  With earlier detection and diagnosis, Janine believes her mom would still be with her today - and that is why she keeps raising money for the cause - to see the great progress we are able to make.  Janine would like to share her Thank You video with everyone - click here to watch.

Kicking breast cancer in the butt!

Mel's Belles started back in 2001 shortly after Cara's dad, Mel, was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Since his passing in 2008, the team has continued to raise incredible amounts of money (this year over $30,000 in Toronto!) and awareness to assist in "kicking this disease in the butt!"  This cause is extremely important to Cara, as she and her sister both carry the same BRCA2 gene as their dad, Mel, his cousin Karen (2013), and her grandmother (2000).  She doesn't want another family member with a date beside their name from cancer.  Cara goes every six months for screening and every time she goes in she is anxious that the appointment will not be the same as the ones prior.  She feels fortunate to have access to early detection programs, and by raising funds through the CIBC Run for the cure, it reassures her that access will continue to be there for her, her family and the thousands of women and men who may one day need it.

Women of Apsley

Alice's sister, Jane, is her inspiration for doing the CIBC Run for the Cure.  Jane walked with her team every year when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, making it through all her treatments, and proudly wearing her survivor shirt.  Seven years ago the cancer returned, but this time they lost Jane.  her courage and strength throughout is an inspiration to all of them.

They formed the team "Women of Apsley" in 2001, raising $700.  This year they raised almost $17,000 bringing their grand fundraising total to over $124,000!  Some of their fundraising includes hosting yard sales, a line dance event, selling garden stones, and a year round bottle drive.  They do all this to raise funds for research in the hope that one day soon we'll have a future without breast cancer.
