At the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure 2013
For the sixth consecutive year, the WIM team will be participating in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure on Sunday October 6, 2013. The Run for the Cure is a 5k or 1k walk or run that raises funds for the foundation in the largest single-day, volunteer-led event in Canada in support of the breast cancer cause.
 
In the past six years we have raised over $160,000 and won the Corporate Spirit Award in 2010. We hope to continue giving hope and saving lives globally. Last year we had 49 participants! This year our goal is to have a team of 50 runners or walkers and collaboratively raise over $15,000 for this worthy cause.
 
It is a FANTASTIC event and we would love to have you on our team, along with your co-workers, friends and family!  It’s a great networking event both professionally and personally! We are asking each member to raise at least $150.00 ($40.00 to join and this includes a free team T-shirt and the $110.00 raised goes directly to breast cancer research).
 
We need you to help us reach this goal!  Click on the link www.runforthecure.com  and Register for the Run!
Our team name is "Women in Mining".

Women in Mining

About Women in Mining
The Women in Mining network is an informal organization connecting women involved in or affiliated with the mining resources sector. The primary goal is to share knowledge, experiences and relationships that encourage growth and diversity. A secondary, but equally important goal is to encourage men and women from the mining industry to participate in the community by raising funds for breast cancer research, to promote Career Prep for high school students and to take part in networking evenings for university students. For more information about Women in Mining, please visit our website: http://www.wimbc.ca

About the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure is Canada's largest single day, volunteer-led fundraising event dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research, education and awareness programs. It was founded by a small group of volunteers who wanted to raise awareness and funds for the breast cancer cause. The Run for the Cure has made great strides since then, while staying true to grassroots and our volunteer founders’ vision.

Last year, Canadians united to raise over $30 million in the 2011 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. The fundraising efforts and volunteer support of over 170,000 annual participants allows the Foundation to continue funding groundbreaking research, education, awareness and advocacy initiatives. This overwhelming support reached international soil in 2011 to include the first international Run site, in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is extremely grateful for this support and is honoured to be entrusted by the nation to continue to lead the way towards our vision of creating a future without breast cancer.
