Pink Is for Hope

More than 17,000 supported CIBC's Run for the Cure, held at U of T in October

The University of Toronto celebrated its fourth year as host of the CIBC Run for the Cure on October 6. More than 17,000 people turned out to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, which sponsors research projects at U of T. Some sported a pink ribbon – a symbol for breast cancer awareness – while others wore pink shirts and wristbands. “The event is a wonderful opportunity to work towards an incredible cause,” says Gina Trubiani (BSc 2003 St. Michael’s, PhD 2008), whose team of U of T staff members raised more than $9,000.
