Because of your support, $10.7 million was raised across Ontario for innovative breast cancer research at the 23rd Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure
The 23rd Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure took place this past Sunday in 30 communities across Ontario with 55,000 participants raising $10.7 million for breast cancer research, health education and advocacy programs.
The fundraising efforts and volunteer support of 127,000 participants in 65 communities across Canada raised over $25 million, to be used toward reducing the incidence and mortality rates of breast cancer and helping support the breast cancer community. With the funds raised at this event, the Foundation is able to invest in innovative research that includes new MRI technology that will enable quicker treatment modifications in patients who are not responding to their current treatments.
"Today thousands of Canadians joined together to inspire hope by participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure," says Sandra Palmaro, CEO of Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - Ontario Region. "Whether walking or running, volunteering or donating, these individuals united to form a community of hope. And this support is bringing us one step closer to our vision of creating a future without breast cancer."
Thank you to everyone who ran, walked, donated and volunteered. We're getting closer to a future without breast cancer, but we can't stop now.
