Cops for Cancer London
September 19, 2020 - TBD
399 Wonderland Rd. S
Cops for Cancer is a fundraising event where law enforcement and emergency services personnel cycle across regions and engage communities en-route. This event helps the Canadian Cancer Society fund childhood cancer research and the largest cancer support system in the country.
CIBC Run for the Cure London
October 4, 2020
This event unites an incredible collective of Canadians who are a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer and want to show their support. It’s an inspirational day that raises significant funds for CCS, the largest charitable funder of breast cancer research in Canada. CCS invests these dollars into ground-breaking breast cancer research, compassionate support services, trusted cancer information and advocacy on behalf of all Canadians. It’s because of the funds Canadians raise through the CIBC Run for the Cure that we know more than ever before about how to prevent, diagnose, treat and live with and beyond breast cancer.
As breast cancer continues to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women, touching the lives of so many families every day, the CIBC Run for the Cure gives families, friends and supporters the opportunity to join together to honour and celebrate their loved ones, and make a real difference.
