About us

In 1992, a small group of volunteers began a movement in Toronto’s High Park. That day they brought 1,500 people together to raise awareness and $85,000 for the breast cancer cause. This marked the beginning of what was to become Canada’s largest single day, volunteer-led event in the support of creating a future without breast cancer—the Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure. Today, the event has over 100,000 participants and raises over $20 million.
The CIBC Run for the Cure is a trailblazing partnership between the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), CIBC and communities across Canada that changed the face of breast cancer.

What we believe in

As breast cancer continues to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women and touches the lives of so many families every day, the CIBC Run for the Cure gives families, friends, and supporters the opportunity to join together in honouring their loved ones, and making a real difference.
