Prince George, B.C.- This Sunday, 250 participants will be  taking part in the  annual “Run for the Cure”, the annual  1km or 5km  run to raise awareness and funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

“Last year,  Prince George raised 41 thousand dollars in this event” says Talea Pecora of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation  “We are certainly hopeful of at least matching that amount this weekend.”

The Run for the Cure is now 25 years old and this year, CIBC celebrates its 20th anniversary as a  sponsor of the event.   New this year, is a  partnership with Willow,  which offers support to those on the breast cancer journey.

Pre registration for the run is taking place this afternoon from  4 to 7  at the CIBC branch  at Pine Centre mall,  but  participants can also register Sunday morning  at the race which will start from City Hall.

The event  schedule calls for  registration at 8:30 AM  followed by  the Opening Ceremonies at 9:30.   The run gets underway at 10,  with awards and closing ceremonies at  10:50.
