Run for the Cure this Sunday

The University of Victoria will be awash in a sea of pink this Sunday

The University of Victoria will be awash in a sea of pink this Sunday for the local CIBC Run for the Cure, the largest single-day, volunteer-led event dedicated to raising funds for the breast cancer cause.

The annual 1km/5km walk/run “is an inspiring day where our community comes together to support the breast cancer cause, and those impacted by this disease,” said Catherine Border, volunteer Co-Run Director.

“On run day, we see this amazing support – whether it’s for a breast cancer survivor, someone going through treatment, or even participating in memory of someone. We are all there to create a future without breast cancer.”

Sunday’s event at UVic begins with registration at 7 a.m. and the run/walk beginning at 9 a.m.

There’s still time to participate.

To register, donate or volunteer your time, visit www.cibcrunforthecure.com for more information.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosis among Canadian women over the age of 20 and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women.

In 2015, an estimated 25,000 Canadian women (and 220 Canadian men) will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
