CIBC Run For The Cure In Windsor 2018
September 30, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
The Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure in Windsor takes place at Riverfront Festival Plaza on Sunday, September 30, 2018.
Each year, tens of thousands of Canadians participate in the Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure and help to raise funds for important breast cancer research, education, and advocacy initiatives. Your support throughout the years has helped Canadian Cancer Society fund research that is changing the face of breast cancer and helping them create a future without it.
The CIBC Run for the Cure is a 5k or 1k walk or run that is the largest single-day, volunteer-led event in Canada in support of the breast cancer cause.
The run begins at 9:30 am with Registration beginning at 8:00 am and the Opening Ceremonies at 9:00 am.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. It is the most common cancer diagnosis in Canadian women.
Thanks to events like CIBC Run for the Cure, now in its 21st year in Windsor, the Canadian Cancer Society has been able to fund progress in breast cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and care. The event has raised more than $3.7 million locally alone and several research grants have been provided directly to the University of Windsor. As a result, fewer Canadian women are dying from breast cancer today than ever before – since their peak in the mid-1980s, mortality rates for breast cancer are at least 44 per cent lower, and the five-year survival rate has increased to 87 per cent.
