October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and our agents have been working overtime to help raise awareness. On October 5th we joined the CIBC run for the cure in downtown Barrie. This run raised 10.7 million dollars across Ontario. With the funds raised at this event, the Foundation is able to invest in innovative research that includes explorations of the genetic causes of breast cancer that could lead to improved risk assessment of women, as well as tailored prevention and treatment options.
“Today thousands of Canadians joined together to inspire hope by participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure,” says Sandra Palmaro, co-CEO of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. “Whether walking or running, volunteering or donating, these individuals united to form a community of support. And this support is bringing us one step closer to our vision of creating a future without breast cancer.”
