CIBC Run for the CureOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which means the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s CIBC Run for the Cure is happening on Sunday, October 4 at the MTS Centre.

It’s not too late to get involved and show your support. Visit CBCF.org for more information and to make a donation.

The nearly 3-mile run (or walk) will begin at 8:45 a.m. sharp, ending back at the MTS Centre for an awards ceremony.

Approximately 22,700 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone, including 170 men.
