23rd CIBC Run for the Cure

October 6, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm MDT

The run will simultaneously be held in 57 different communities across Canada, but this year, the Calgary team will be aiming to top the national fundraising leaderboard by raising over $1 million for the cause.

One in eight women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and breast cancer is currently the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canadian women. Thanks to events like CIBC Run for the Cure, the Canadian Cancer Society has been able to fund progress is breast cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and care. As a result, fewer Canadian women are dying from breast cancer today than ever before – since the peak in the mid-1980s, mortality rates for breast cancer are at least 44% lower and the five-year survival rate has increased to 87%.
