Each year more than 3,000 runners and walkers participate in the Mississauga CIBC Run for the Cure on our green campus – and this year promises to be an exciting, powerful and memorable experience for everyone who participates.  

The event is a 1k or 5k run and/or walk. You don’t have to decide your distance or whether you will be walking, running or a combination of the two until the day of the event.

We also need volunteers! You can make a difference, too! With your support, the Foundation will continue to fund vital research and community health grants that have led progress in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care.
