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:
Fact: In 2010, an estimated 5,300 women in Canada will die from breast cancer.
Fact: In 2010, an estimated 180 men in Canada will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
Fact: One in nine (11%) Canadian women are expected to develop breast cancer during her 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.
Martell Home Builders is joining forces with tens of thousands of other Canadians to help raise awareness and fight 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 in October, 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, be sure to stop us and say hi, or share your story.
Our goal is to raise $5000. Please help us by making a donation.
