CIBC Run For Cure: 2012 WrapUp

Martell Hope Builders had another awesome experience at CIBC’s Run For The Cure on Sunday, Sept 30th. It was a bit rainy, but spirits were bright! Centennial Park was the place to be in Moncton, as our community enthusiastically showed their support.This annual event raises awareness (and funds) for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. While kilts and uniforms were spotted, pink definitely dominated the fashion scene!

All in all, our team raised $2856.00 for the Cure. Check out some pics from the day below:

 

Fuzzy Pink Mustaches, Cars, and Breast Cancer

Did You know that one in 9 (11%) of Canadian women are expected to develop breast cancer in their lifetime?

 

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, education and awareness programs.

That is why we at Martell Homes put giant (and admittedly ugly) fuzzy pink mustaches on our cars every year. We do it to raise awareness and support for the fight to end breast cancer. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation does more than just cancer research; they also help pay for treatment, offer education and after care support, fit women with wigs and prosthesis, and more. This organization saves lives and Martell Home Builders support them 100%.

From now until race time on September 30th, our trucks will be driving around Moncton with a big pink moustache on them to celebrate and raise awareness for all those who are fighting. If you see us (and the mustaches) be sure to stop us and say hi, or share your story.
