It used to be a huge fundraiser in Vernon, but it won't be held this year.
The annual CIBC Run for the Cure has been cancelled in Vernon. The society says it is due to a drop in participation and money raised. The Canadian Cancer Society says 5 years ago the event raised $66,000 but dropped to $23,000 last year.
The cancellation comes after the recent announcement that the society's Vernon office will close in mid-September.
