The 2012 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure is set for Sept. 30.

The Abbotsford event, one of dozens across the country, takes place at Rotary Stadium (32470 Haida Dr.) beginning at 8:30 a.m. with registration and donation drop off.

After the opening ceremonies, set for approximately 9:30 a.m., participants can take their place at the starting line for the 10 a.m. start.

Last year, the local event saw 2,168 breast cancer survivors, family members and supporters take part. They raised more than $295,000 in the local run. It was part of a province-wide effort that saw $3.67 million raised for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Across Canada, the effort raised more than $30 million in 59 communities.

The annual fundraiser supports the vision of creating a future without breast cancer. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is making a significant impact to reduce the burden of breast cancer through research, education, awareness and advocacy initiatives with public support.

The year marks the 21st anniversary of the run.
