For the first time since 2019, the CIBC Run for the Cure will be held in person in Grande Prairie. On Sunday, October 2nd, people will gather in Muskoseepi Park as part in support of breast cancer initiatives through the Canadian Cancer Society.
The nation-wide event raises funds for research, support programs, and advocacy efforts for people with breast cancer. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women, with one in eight expected to be diagnosed in their lifetime.
Registration for the Grande Prairie event opens at 8:30 a.m. with the opening ceremonies at 9:30 featuring inspirational stories and honouring those impacted by breast cancer. A 5K and a 1K route are available starting at 10:15.
