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.



Team Mama K 42

Every day, 75 Canadians will hear the words “you have breast cancer" and in September of 2020, that's exactly what our Team Captain, Laurie Kaufman aka MamaK42 heard. And so began her journey. The journey that her sister Karen was on in 2019 and the journey that other close family members and friends have been on. Sadly there are still so many other women and yes, even men who are battling this insidious disease. While these Canadians are living longer, healthier lives after a breast cancer diagnosis, there is still so much work to be done and we are asking for your support. 

Laurie's mantra since diagnosis is "Faith over Fear" and it has been her faith, her family, her friends, her work colleagues, her neighbours, her Ice Hound Family, her Buddy League family and even perfect strangers who have lifted her up and carried her through. She has bravely undergone a lumpectomy, chemotherapy, hospitalization due to an allergic reaction to the chemo, a double mastectomy (found another tumour), radiation, shingles, more radiation. By participating in this year’s Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure, and with your help, we are helping change the future of breast cancer. We are participating in this run in honour of the incredible people in Laurie's life, and we need your support!

Please contribute what you can to help us achieve our fundraising goal of $3000. Every dollar makes a difference. Your donation will fund the best breast cancer research in Canada and a vitally important support system that helps people with breast cancer and their families nationwide. Alternatively, you can also join our team! Just reach out to any one of us.

Did you know that just $100 could fund two hours of life-saving research in a world class laboratory? Your contribution could lead to the next breakthrough!

Together, we can show Canadians facing breast cancer that we will never stop running. #TeamMamaK42

Thanks in advance for your support!
