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

Posted 2015 September 21

Hello Everyone!

Sunday, October 4th marks the return of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) CIBC Run for the Cure! The CBCF has made a significant impact to reduce the burden of breast cancer through research, education, awareness and advocacy initiatives with support from people like you!

In previous years, the Department of Pathology & Molecular Medicine has put together a team to participate in the Run for the Cure and raise funds for this cause. Some of these funds have even come back to Queen's in the form of funding grants and fellowships. We are again assembling a team to support the CBCF in their noble initiative and to show gratitude for their constant support of our own professors, students, and Kingston community.

Event Information
Date: Sunday, October 4th, 2015
Time: 10:00am (Opening Ceremonies) + 11:00am (Start of 5km run)
