Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) CIBC Run for the Cure

2011 October 05

This past Sunday, Oct. 2, 2011, thousands of Canadians across 59 communities gathered for the annual Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) CIBC Run for the Cure event. Canada-wide, CBCF participants raised over $30 million, which provides funding for breast cancer research, increased awareness, early detection, and effective treatment programs aimed to create a future without breast cancer.

This year, 25 students and faculty from the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine were brought together to join in the special event held at St. Lawrence College, collectively raising over $3275. Although the day was met with cold, rainy conditions, this did not deter Team Pathology and Molecular Medicine from running the 5K challenge! Thank you and great job to our participants for their contribution towards creating a breast cancer free future and their constant dedication to advance human disease treatments through innovative research!
