CIBC Run for the Cure Ottawa/Gatineau
The Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure unites a collective of Canadians who are a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer. With the support of that collective, the Canadian Cancer Society funds breast cancer research, compassionate support services, trusted cancer information and advocacy with funds raised each year.
Almost $414 million has been invested in ground-breaking breast cancer research by the Canadian Cancer Society and former Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation combined over the last 25 years.
CIBC Run for the Cure events are held every fall in 57 locations across Canada, and feature both 1k and 5k distance options. Canadians are encouraged to join or start a team, or participate as an individual.
