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

The CIBC Run for the Cure will take place on Sunday, October 1, 2017 in more than 56 communities across Canada. Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime? It is the most common cancer diagnosis in Canadian women. Thanks to events like the CIBC Run for the Cure, the CCS has been able to fund progress in beast cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and care. As a result, fewer Canadian women are dying from breast cancer today than ever before - since their peak in the mid-1980's, mortality rates for breast cancer are 44 percent lower, and the five-year survival rate has increase to 88 percent!

So join us at the Nanaimo CIBC Run for the Cure event at Beban Park. Registration opens at 8:30 am Opening Ceremonies at 9:30 am Run/walk will start at 10:00 am Closing ceremonies at 11:00 am
