Canadian Breast Cancer Run for the Cure
One frosty fall day in Calgary in 2011, 10,000 participants including myself ran, walked, panted, strolled, rollerbladed, and shuffled to raise money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in the 20th annual Run for the Cure event.
About the Run
The CIBC Run for the Cure is a 5 kilometre walk or run that raises funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. It is the largest single-day, volunteer-led event in Canada in support of the breast cancer cause. In 2011, this event took place in over 60 locations across Canada.
As an artist, I used my creative side to help raise money for this great cause by painting a series of three fun, bright, and very funky 16x20 oil paintings of pink bras that I donated as incentive prizes to my top 3 donors.
About the Bras
I continue to paint the bras on a commission-basis, donating a portion of the proceeds to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. For information on commissioning a bra painting, please contact me here.
