Run for the Cure

Mélanie and Léah ran 5K in the Run for the Cure this past Sunday. About the Run:

“The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure is Canada's largest single day, volunteer-led fundraising event dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research, and education and awareness programs.

Each year, thousands of Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life unite to participate in the Run. Their reasons for participating vary, but they all have the same goal; to create a future without breast cancer.”

This past Sunday, the participation across the country raised over $33 million.

Mélanie’s grandmother, affectionately known as “Ninnie”, fought cancer with her positive spirit and passion for life. Mélanie and Léah proudly represented Ninnie in the Run.
