Bloomex Sponsors Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure 2019
The CIBC Run for the Cure unites a collective of Canadians who are a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer. Since the Run began more than 20 years ago with a small group of volunteers in Toronto's High Park, it has raised almost $445 million for breast cancer research and support. Today, it's the largest single day, volunteer-led event in support of the breast cancer cause. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women and the Run provides people with breast cancer, their families and friends the chance to honour loved ones while making a promise to help make breast cancer beatable.
"It's an honour for Bloomex to help support the Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure," says Sue McDonald, Director of PR and Partnerships at Bloomex. "Breast cancer affects so many Canadians and the Run brings people together from coast to coast with one purpose in mind: to create a world where no one fears breast cancer. We want to do everything we can to support that vital cause, and to recognize the courage and tenacity of those affected by breast cancer."
"We are so grateful for the support we receive from Bloomex," says Carly Schur, National Director of Corporate Programs for the Canadian Cancer Society. "It's because of the funds raised through the Run that we know more than ever before about how to prevent, diagnose, treat and live with and beyond breast cancer and help people with breast cancer live their lives more fully."
