The CIBC Run for the Cure in Prince George was a smashing success.

Co-Run Director, Melissa Veregin, says yesterday’s run netted some serious cash.

“It was an incredible day we had over at city hall, we had over 300 participants and raised over 66 thousand dollars.”

Veregin adds they could not be more pleased with the support.

“It’s been amazing to see everyone come together and celebrate the survivors and everyone who has passed.”

It was a very fruitful year for the run across Canada as just over 21.5 million dollars was raised for breast cancer research.
