The CIBC Run for the Cure is set to return to South Surrey next month.
The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 2 at South Surrey Athletic Park (14600 20 Ave.), and will feature both one- and five-km walking routes. The fundraiser – which raises funds for breast cancer research, support services and other related programs through the Canadian Cancer Society – has been held for well over two decades, raising hundreds of millions of dollars in total.
According to a City of Surrey notice on its events website, the Run for the Cure is “the largest, single-day, volunteer-led event in Canada in support of the breast cancer cause.”
Last year’s event was a combination of in-person and virtual activities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but this year’s event will see a return to in-person activities.
“We’re excited to share that this year’s Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure will return as an in-person event. We will observe all public health guidelines and recommendations at CIBC Run for the Cure events to ensure your safety,” reads a note on the event’s official website.
