For the 3rd year running (pun intended), FriesenPress was a happy participant in the CIBC Run for the Cure. Held at the beautiful University of Victoria campus, a team of 9 employees laced up for the 5km run/walk on a crisp, sunny Sunday morning. As the temperature cools, this annual event has quickly become a hotly anticipated fall tradition for us here at FriesenPress.
The event, which took place at over 60 communities across Canada, raised an estimated $21.5 million for breast cancer research and to help support the 25,200 Canadian women and men who will be diagnosed in 2015, as well as their families. In Victoria, 2,173 participants came out and raised an estimated $253,909!
Spurred on by one of the most enthusiastic cheerleaders at the event (thanks Emma!), we had a blast celebrating as everyone crossed the finish line, deeply grateful to be part of such a humbling cause.
