Run For The Cure Participants take to the streets
Victoria residents will participate in the Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure by joining the 5k or 1k walk or run that raises funds for the breast cancer cause this morning.
Opening Ceremonies are at 8:30am and the race starts at 9am. The route extends from Ring Road down University Drive to Cedar Hill Cross Road and Gordon Head Road before turning around at McKenzie Avenue and returning back to the University.
Parking will not be permitted on the route starting at 7:00 AM on the day of the event. Road Marshals will be assigned to each intersection along the route to help direct run participants during this time.
Since 1992, the Run has raised over $430 million for the breast cancer cause, and last year alone, events across Canada raised $17 million with almost 80,000 participants.
