The Queen’s Law Cancer Society annually organizes a student group to participate in the CIBC Run for the Cure. So what is the run, when is the run, and why should you participate?
The run is a charity event organized by the Canadian Cancer Society and supported by CIBC, raising money for breast cancer. The first run was 25 years ago, in Toronto’s High Park. Since then, the run has turned into a movement, where many cities participate in the largest national fund raising event for breast cancer. The $17 million raised annually is put to good use, supporting breast cancer research, diagnosis and treatment care, and the breast cancer patient support network, which aims to increase the quality of life for those suffering from breast cancer. It’s a great opportunity to get active in support and to honour of friends and family who have been affected by the disease, or who may be affected in the future.
This year’s run is taking place on October 1st, starting at St. Lawrence College. Not a great runner? Not to worry. There is a 1km run that is friendly for people of all athletic abilities. In addition, the main run is a 5km route, which is the run Queen’s Law will be participating in. So sign up now at http://www.supportcbcf.com/site/TR/RunfortheCureFY18/RFTC18/1949453037?pg=team&fr_id=2649&team_id=107373 and join your friends for a fun run in support of a great cause. The QLCS exec looks forward to seeing you there!
