Yesterday, Stafflink joined 170,000 Canadians across Canada that ran and walked the CIBC Run for the Cure. We’re proud to have been part of such an inspiring event that raised over $30,000,000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
The Stafflink “Think Pink” team met at the Hart House on the University of Toronto campus at 9:30am to meet up before the race began. At 10am, we broke off into smaller groups and went our separate ways to the starting lines for the 5K run, the 5K walk and the 1K walk. Even though the rain was coming down strong, spirits were high.
It was so inspiring to see thousands of people that have all been affected by the ‘C’ word in one way or another coming together in support of this event. The enormous crowd, all wearing names of family members and friends, is a living testament to everyone lost, all the survivors and those battling the disease and makes you realize how many people will be impacted by the donations raised and how we can help contribute to finding a cure, hopefully within our lifetime.
