Thank you to everyone who watched this year's CIBC Run for the Cure live broadcast! If you've missed it, you can stream it now on YouTube or Facebook.

Our website will accept donations until December 31. We encourage you to keep fundraising to support all Canadians impacted by breast cancer. Thank you so much for being so supportive of the breast cancer cause.

Sallying Forth

Verb: Sally Forth - To leave a safe place in a brave or confident way in order to do something difficult.

It’s been eight years since I last hugged my Mum.

Eight years since we went for a walk, shared a laugh, ate a meal or raised a toast. And eight years since she last held her grandchildren in her arms. I still miss her so much.

This year is the 30th anniversary of the Run for the Cure. The Run was something that Mum and I always did together and continuing this tradition helps me keep feel close to her. It’s a way for me to honour her memory while raising money to help others. Help fund research, advocacy, and compassionate support.

Every day, more than 75 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada. But since its peak in 1986, the breast cancer death rate in women has been nearly cut in half. This reduction reflects the impact of research that has led to improvements in early detection and treatment for breast cancer.

Because of COVID, there won’t be a big run again this year. Instead on October 3rd I’ll be taking part by going for a walk in my neighbourhood. I’ll be thinking of Mum and I’ll be encouraging everyone I know to get a mammogram. And because it matters so much, I promise to never stop running.

Will you support me?

- Gwen
