Impact Statement At the Canadian Cancer Society, we are committed to improving and saving lives. That’s why we are always looking for new ways to prevent cancer, find it early and treat it more successfully. It’s why we’re always ready to give people with cancer the help and support they need to lead more fulfilling lives.

We set ourselves apart from other cancer charities by taking a comprehensive approach against cancer. We are also the only national charity that supports all Canadians living with all cancers across the country.
Description The CIBC Run for the Cure is a walk/run event held in nearly communities across Canada. The purpose of this event is to bring together people who support those affected by breast cancer, and to raise funds for breast cancer research and patient support programs.

Planning and organizing the Run takes time, passion and creative thinking. With support from volunteers and the organization’s staff, you will be a part of something truly extraordinary in your community.
