Run for the Cure - 2007 - Toronto,ON

The CBCF Run for the Cure took place on SUN SEP30 & it truly was a great day thanks to the support of TEAM NYGÅRD right across Canada!  Enthusiastic Canadians walked & ran in 53 communities across the country.

NYGÅRD has been supporting the fight against breast cancer for well over a decade now & it is absolutely our corporate 'Charity of Choice'.   Our commitment toward finding a CURE is STRONG & we are proud to be a NATIONAL CHAMPION level sponsor for CBCF Run for the Cure for the 7th consecutive year!

To date, NYGÅRD has provided over 950,000 T-shirts to Run sites across Canada.  In 2003, in addition to the white participant T-shirts, NYGÅRD wanted to do something special for breast cancer SURVIVORS -- a pink SURVIVOR T-shirt for all those who have overcome the disease. The Survivor T-shirts are a special recognition of the thousands who have shown courage & strength, giving survivors the opportunity to proudly identify themselves -- & dramatically showing just how many people have been affected by breast cancer.

The number of Run participants across the country was overwhelming & the sea of pink T-shirts stirred mixed emotions -- We felt a tinge of sadness because of what this colour has come to represent ... lives lost & lives changed because of breast cancer.  But we also felt joy & anticipation because every speck of pink represented a VICTORY… & HOPE for the future.  The VISUAL message expressed through the number of survivors wearing the pink T-shirts emphasizes & highlights the importance of raising funds to support research.  So in years to come, our children & grandchildren will will live in a world WITHOUT breast cancer.  Until that day comes -- & it will -- we at NYGÅRD pledge our CONTINUING support to a Race… a Dream… a Cure!
