Organizers of the Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure are encouraging Newmarket residents to take part in a milestone anniversary of the fundraiser that supports those affected by breast cancer.

“For 30 years, we have inspired and united a collective of Canadians nationwide dedicated to changing the future of breast cancer,” they said in a statement.

“While we celebrate this incredible milestone and look back on three decades of progress, there is still so much work to be one. Every day, an estimated 75 Canadians are diagnosed with breast cancer. Now more than ever, Canadians affected by breast cancer need our support.”

On Oct. 3 at 11 a.m., residents can participate in the virtual event.

The livestreamed opening ceremonies will feature an energizing warm-up, performances by iconic Canadian artists and inspirational stories from Canadians living with and beyond breast cancer.

Funds raised from the event are directly invested into groundbreaking breast cancer research, advocacy work and a national support system that makes a difference in the lives of Canadians with breast cancer.
