Once again this year I recruited a team of co-workers to run in the Annual CIBC Run for the Cure. On Sunday, October 4th, I participated in the 2015 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure 5 km race. It’s a fun run, so it wasn’t timed. My iPhone’s MiCoach app said I ran it in 26:45!
I am excited to be contributing to Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s vision of creating a future without breast cancer. The money raised during the CIBC Run for the Cure helps to fund critical and groundbreaking research, education, and advocacy initiatives across the country. With an estimated 24,000 women and men diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013, I am glad to be helping to change those statistics.
Who do I run for?
I run for past and present co-workers. I run for acquaintances. I run for all survivors and those who have fought hard but succumbed to the disease. I can only image what it would be like to find out you have breast cancer. So on Sunday, I put myself in their shoes and I ran for them!
Raising Money for the Run For The Cure
As a fundraiser for the event, the Team held a bake sale. All profits from our bake sale went to the Canadian Brest Cancer Society. Last year I created pink cupcakes. This year, I raised my game and created pink & chocolate lollipops in the shape of flowers and hearts.
It’s not too late to give. Please donate to my team “the NOTLERS” and support our fundraising efforts. Together, we can help to create a future without breast cancer. If you’d like to see ways in which your support is making a difference, take a look your impact at www.cibcrunforthecure.com.

Anyhow, I hope you have a great week ahead. How do you plan to stay active this week? Do you run any charity races? If you do, which ones are your favorite?
