Media Advisory: CIBC Employees Are Available To Share Stories About Why The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run For The Cure Is Important To Them

Stocks in this article: CM

TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2012 /CNW/ - CIBC's involvement in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure started with a handful of dedicated and passionate employees, and over the last 20 years has grown into an important part of the fabric of our organization. Employees will be available in all 60 communities where the CIBC Run for the Cure takes place to tell their story about why they have become involved.

Below are stories from CIBC's eight Regional Run Champions. To speak to a Regional Run Champion or to a local Run Champion in your community please contact: Sean Hamilton, Director, External Communications and Media Relations, CIBC, Tel: 416-304-8456, Cell 416-886-2567 or email

Karen Ringstead BC & Northern Territories  In Karen's 18 years of participation, her favourite Run moment was watching a recent survivor - a CIBC employee - with her whole family being cheered by Team CIBC upon crossing the finish line.

"I don't want to see cancer move into the fourth generation in our family," says Ringstead, whose Great Grandmother, Grandmother, Great Aunt and mother have all battled breast cancer. "I think it's so important to create awareness of early detection, minimizing risk and how we all can make a difference in fighting against breast cancer."

Sangeen Chahal Alberta  Sangeen has participated in the CIBC Run for the Cure for 11 years, the past five as a Run Champion, because she feels like she can make a difference and give back to her community.

"This cause does not just affect those with breast cancer, it affects everyone," says Chahal whose aunts, family, friends and a colleague have all battled the disease. "It makes me proud to work for an organization with such a strong community commitment. I still tear up today when I remember a client who asked to sit down with me to thank me for everything CIBC does for breast cancer research and awareness. She said that we are the reason she is here today."
