Red Deerians will join Canadians across the country for the CIBC Run for the Cure.
The Canadian Cancer Society’s run, which will be held at Bower Ponds, begins at 10 a.m. on Oct. 6. Red Deer will be one of 57 communities hosting an event.
“Each year, the CIBC Run for the Cure unites a collective of Canadians who are a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer,” said Andrea Seale, Canadian Cancer Society interim CEO.
“With the support of that collective, we fund the best breast cancer research, provide the largest cancer support system in the country and act as a voice for Canadians, advocating for important social change.”
Since its inception, the run has raised more than $445 million for breast cancer research and support programs such as the peer match program, helpline and breast cancer support group facilitator training.
