Avatar Hero

Never Stop Running.

Being physically apart won’t stop us from coming together as a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer. This year create your Run avatar and customize it to make it your own. Dress up your virtual runner with fun accessories like a pink boa, sunglasses and a gold cape. The more you fundraise, the more features you can unlock for your avatar. Join us for the reimagined CIBC Run for the Cure on October 4.
