Guelph to take to the streets for CIBC Run for the Cure

Guelph to take to the streets for CIBC Run for the Cure”

"If she had the same diagnosis today, she would have been a survivor", she said. Despite finishing treatment in mid-2008 and being in remission, the darkness followed. "I want them to forget for a few minutes about why we're here and just kind of enjoy the moment together", she said. I'm going through it right now.

Kolwich, a development officer with the Canadian Cancer Society, was one of the organizers of the Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure on Sunday morning, starting and ending at Exhibition Park. "The metastatic community wants that to be known", she says. That's exactly what she found. "That's why I'm here, is to hopefully save other people's lives".

"It's very emotional and I think that events like this, they are actually helping to raise funds are making a massive difference".

Marie Amodeo was feeling sick from chemo when one of her colleagues first organized a team to go in the CIBC Run for the Cure in September 2013.

"It changed my life. I am walking for those who have lost their battle, for those who continue to fight, for those who have survived the fight", said Dugdale. "A stronger, courageous woman". Last year was colder; this year, although it was still a bit chilly, the sun came out.

"It was a great turnout this year", MacDonald said.

"I think it's a testament to the culture in Calgary where volunteerism is really important". Based on those numbers alone, McGowan said it's fair to assume nearly everyone has a connection to the cause. "A lot of participants showed up and the energy was fantastic", he said.

She has been cancer-free for seven years.

The Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure is a 5k or 1k walk or run that raises funds for Canadian Cancer Society (CCS). It is the largest single-day, volunteer-led event in Canada in support of the breast cancer cause.

It's inside this lounge, which will have food, drinks and representatives from local programs, where participants will be able to write messages of hope on pink balloons, which will be tied to the finish line to inspire others who are running for the cure.

Dancers perform during the opening ceremonies at the CIBC Run for the Cure at Riverfront Festival Plaza, Sunday, Oct. 6, 2019.
