Event description

Description

The Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure is Canada's largest single-day, volunteer-led event dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research, education and advocacy programs. With 1K and 5K walk/run options available, there is a way for everyone to participate.

This year in Grande Prairie, we are incorporating a COLOR THROW SECTION along the route, where we will be bombarding those runners who choose to participate with bright pink color powder! All funds raised from tickets purchased for this section will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society to support the fight against breast cancer.

FAQs

Do I have to be registered for the Run for the Cure?

Yes! In order to participate in the color throw section, you must be registered in the run.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yes! The person you would like to transfer it to must bring it to the registration tent on run day to collect his or her wristband to let them through the color section.

Do I need to bring my ticket to the event?

Yes! Bring your ticket (or your phone with a copy of the email!) to the registration tent on the run day to receive your wrist band. Then, all you have to do is flash that wrist band during the run to be let through to the color section!

Is the color powder safe? What is it made of?

Yes, it is perfectly safe, and approved by the Canadian Cancer Society Health Promotions team. All color powder is non-toxic and is corn-starch based, but as with any product, you probably do not want it to get in your eyes. All volunteers are instructed to throw behind the head, but wearing sunglasses or the goofiest goggles (preferably pink) that you can find might be a good idea!
