About the CIBC Run for the Cure
In 1992, a small group of volunteers began a movement in Toronto’s High Park. That day they brought 1,500 people together to raise awareness and $85,000 for the breast cancer cause. This marked the beginning of what was to become Canada’s largest single day, volunteer-led event in support of creating a future without breast cancer, the CIBC Run for the Cure. Today, the event has nearly 100,000 participants and raises over $17 million annually in communities across Canada.
The CIBC Run for the Cure began in 1997 as a trailblazing partnership between the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF), CIBC and communities across the country. On February 1, 2017, CBCF and the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) joined forces under the CCS banner. Together, CCS, CIBC and thousands of dedicated Canadians will continue to raise vital funds for breast cancer through this signature event. We are grateful to CIBC, their employees and clients for their longstanding support, and to the countless volunteers, participants and donors that are helping to change the face of breast cancer.
This event brings together an incredible community of people who have a personal connection to breast cancer and want to show their support. It’s an inspirational day that raises significant funds for CCS, the largest charitable funder of breast cancer research in Canada. CCS invests these dollars in the most promising breast cancer research that is leading the way in prevention, diagnosis and treatment and care, as well as funding Canada’s leading breast cancer patient support network, which works to improve the quality of life and the emotional support needed for those affected by this disease.
As breast cancer continues to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women and touches the lives of so many families every day, the CIBC Run for the Cure gives families, friends, and supporters the opportunity to join together in honouring their loved ones, and making a real difference.
