This past weekend, our staff joined thousands of other participants and volunteers for the CIBC Run for the Cure in Vancouver. This annual event takes place in communities across Canada and aims to raise money to help fund breast cancer research, education and support programs.
Leading up the event, our Vancouver team was working hard behind the scenes to raise money for this great cause. We’re happy to announce that our staff has already raised more than $12,600 through online donations with corporate matching and fundraising events in our offices and warehouse.
The 2014 CIBC Run for The Cure in Vancouver raised more than $1.5 million for breast cancer research – an incredible achievement that will help bring us closer to a future without breast cancer.
This was our 8th consecutive year participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure, and it continues to be an inspiring and humbling experience. From children to adults, to breast cancer survivors to breast cancer fighters, it was an honor to walk, jog and run alongside others who are passionate advocates in the fight against Breast Cancer.
