Breast Cancer run

Get ready to run, walk, donate or fundraise as part of the CIBC Run for the Cure event on Sunday at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School. Money raised during the event will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women, with one in nine women expected to develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Teams and individuals can register at www.cbcf.org or by calling 403-340-3959. Final registrations take place at 8 a.m., with the opening at 9:30 a.m. and the start of the 1K or 5K walk or run at 10 a.m. The event started nine years ago in Red Deer and has grown from 300 people attending the first year to more than 1,100 people taking part last year who raised $254,000. More than a million people have done the run across Canada since the event started in Toronto in 1992. Teams and individuals can pick up their run kits from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday at the CIBC south branch at No. 4 5111 22nd St.

Perinatal remembrance

Alberta Health Services is holding its annual Perinatal Remembrance Service in Central Alberta on Saturday.

Parents, families, friends and staff are welcome to attend.

Chinese Moon Festival

The Chinese Moon Festival is coming to Red Deer. The popular harvest festival dates back 3,000 years and is sometimes referred to as the Lantern Festival or Mooncake Festival. Red Deer residents will have a chance to celebrate the festival with an event planned for 6 p.m. on Saturday at the Red Star Restaurant at 3731 50th Ave. It will include lion dancing, karaoke, gourmet Chinese food, Chinese hip hop, fashion, music and Tai Chi. It will also be the inauguration celebration for the Chinese GooGo Centre, a community service centre for newcomers to Red Deer from China or other areas who need help finding work or learning English.
