CIBC Run For The Cure In Windsor 2019
October 6 @ 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, October 6, 2019.
The Canadian Cancer Society 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 will take place on Sunday, October 6, 2019, in Windsor at Riverfront Plaza. 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 Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure, now in its 22nd 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 $4 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.
