Last year’s 2013 BLING for BOOBIES team
Breast Cancer awareness month is just around the corner, which means it’s edging up to that time of year again, CIBC’s run for the cure on October 5th, 2014. CIBC’s Run for the cure is our number one charity of choice, and for last two years we have been supporting this amazing cause with our European Goldsmith Team “Bling for Boobies!” …. haha get it! As the majority of our jewellery adorns Kelowna’s beautiful women, we thought it fitting to support this very important cause. We love our clients, we love our bling and we love our boobies!
Last year was our first year at the run, and we had an amazing team, this year we want it to be even bigger and better! If you’re passionate about this cause we want you to join our team! Every team member will get a ‘BLING FOR BOOBIES’ t-shirt and the satisfaction of knowing you’re making a difference! If you or someone you know wants to join our fight for the cure send us a message on our Facebook page or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know your t-shirt size. Or if you would like to register with our ‘Bling for Boobies’ team and help raise money towards our goal go to the RUN FOR THE CURE website and look for the BLING FOR BOOBIES team. And pass along news of our campaign on to your friends and family.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women. And it is the second leading cause of death from cancer in Canadian women. Nearly everyone in Canada knows a person who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, whether it is a friend of a friend, a friend, a sister, a mother, a daughter, or a wife. We all know or have known someone who has had to battle with this disease.The Breast Cancer Society of Canada believes that every dollar Canadians donate to breast cancer research brings us one step closer to discovering the cause of breast cancer, better methods to prevent and detect it, treatments that are more effective and improving the quality of life for survivors.
