The opening ceremonies will be livestreamed on Canadian Cancer Society’s Facebook and YouTube channels at 11:30 a.m. and will be hosted by Jully Black, the award-winning singer-songwriter dubbed Canada’s Queen of R&B Soul.

Black has partnered with the Run to cheer on participants and supporters, and to empower all Canadians affected by breast cancer to never stop running. Viewers can also expect a high-energy warm-up and powerful performances from Barenaked Ladies, Jess Moskaluke and Carolyn Dawn Johnson.

The CIBC Run for the Cure was created in 1992 by a small group of volunteers began a movement in Toronto’s High Park. That day they brought together 1,500 people to raise awareness and $85,000 for breast cancer. This marked the beginning of what was to become Canada’s largest single day, volunteer-led event in support of the breast cancer cause, the CIBC Run for the Cure. Today, the event has over 80,000 participants and raises $16 million annually in communities across Canada.
