07 Oct Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is marked by the annual CIBC Run for the Cure event that was recently held on October 3.
Breast cancer touches the lives of many Canadian families every day. In fact, 75 Canadians heard, “You have breast cancer,” every day last year. The CIBC Run for a Cure helps raise funds for research and it helps raise awareness about how breast cancer affects the lives of so many Canadian women and their families.
Mountainside Animal Hospital supports this cause and encourages you to do the same. Some of our team members participated in the event on October 3rd, where more than $9 million was raised for Canadians impacted by breast cancer. For anyone who wishes to donate, the website (https://cancer.ca/en/get-involved/our-events/cibc-run-for-the-cure) remains open to donations until the end of the year.
