We are so proud of our 2011 CMC Team who participated in the 20th Annual Run/Walk for the Cure on Sunday October 2, 2011. We braved cold, windy and wet weather to join in and had teams participating in both Toronto and Montreal.
Congratulations to our team not only for their efforts on the big day, but also in raising a grand total of $6,303 to support Breast Cancer Research. A big shout out and thanks to all those who supported us in exceeding our fundraising goal. We can’t wait until next year!
The Run for the Cure is a volunteer-led event that started in 1992 by Andrea Thomas Hill. In its first year, this event drew in 1,500 participants and raised $85,000 for breast cancer research. Since then, more than 1,000,000 participants have participated in the Run for the Cure raising millions of dollars in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s vision of a future free of breast cancer. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is a leader in funding research, education and awareness programs and improving the quality of life for those affected by breast cancer. This volunteer-based organization works collaboratively to fund and support relevant and innovative research, meaningful education and awareness programs, early diagnosis and effective treatment, and a positive quality of life for those living with breast cancer.

" I enjoyed all aspects of the course, I found it very informative and practical. "
" Instructor Peter Taylor was outstanding as he led this class. The small group of five led to some very interesting conversation as the course progressed. It also enabled trust to develop quickly and therefore a more open and honest environment. The subject matter of the course was fascinating! "
