Pink Power and the Run for the Cure

The CIBC Run for the Cure will take place across Canada this October 3rd in a a location near you.  If you would like to support the work that CIBC does for  breast cancer research, you can celebrate this year’s run by heading to your nearest CIBC branch to see their Run for the Cure Pink Collection(TM) display.  It’s never too early to shop for Christmas gifts, stocking stuffers, or perhaps for a gift for a friend or a birthday.  The products are a vision in pink and are ideal for lovers of all things girly and pink, and for the girls and women in your life. (For the man who likes brighter colours, there are also pink, yellow and red cuff links.)

One hundred per cent of the net proceeds from the sale of Pink Collection(TM) items support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s goal to create a future without breast cancer through breast cancer research, public education and awareness programmes.

The collection this year includes the following items:

–  set of glass magnets: $7

–  lunch tote:  $15

–  pair of cufflinks: $15

–  bookmark: $4

–  card protector: $2

–  roll-up and washable eco bag with pink floral motif: $5

–  photo album:  $7

If you don’t have a need for a book mark, small photo album, water bottle, or a stylish magnet, for example, you just might want to get one of their light weight shopping bags.  Unlike many reusable bags found in stores today, this one is washable and rolls up into a small cylinder – perfect for tucking away in your bag for future use.

In 2009, over 170,000 Canadians took part in the CIBC Run for the Cure.  The Pink Collection raised $1.76 million for breast cancer research.  All Pink Collection products are available at a CIBC branch near you until October 3rd.

  1. I think the Run for the Cure is an amazing fund raiser of all times. It gets provinces together on the same day at the same time out making a huge difference in finding a cure. I’m proud to be a part of it. I’ve run in five races now in two different towns. I’m proud of my sponsers and will continue to run/walk or whatever it takes as long as my body is able to help. God bless everyone!!

  2. Thank you for your message, Lu-Anne and best wishes for the run this year. I hope you will have great weather whereever you do the run this year. The run in Vancouver is always a celebratory event with lots of people taking part.
