CIBC’s Run for the Cure 2010

Each year I participate in CIBC’s Run for the Cure to raise money for breast cancer research and prevention. It’s an important charity to me, my paternal Grandmother died of cancer in 2001. She was the most amazing woman and it was heartbreaking to watch.

My maternal Grandmother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and is now undergoing treatment that would not have been possible without fundraisers like this raising money for breast cancer research. With your help we can make a difference.

For those who have never attended a run, the runners in pink shirts are breast cancer survivors, those in red are lead sponsor CIBC’s employees, and average Janes and Joes run in white. Most sport various accoutrements in pink hats, wigs, scarves, tutus, leg warmers, temporary tattoos anything and everything you can think of is somewhere represented. It’s the only day of the year I wear pink. Click for a few pictures from last year’s Run.

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure is Canada’s largest single day, volunteer-led fundraising event dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research, and education awareness programs.

This year’s run takes place on Sunday, October 3rd, 2010, and I am less than halfway to my goal of raising $200, and I would really appreciate your support.

Thanks for your help.
