Women in Mining BC (WIMBC) proudly participated in the CIBC Run for the Cure in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation on October 6, 2013 (under our former name Women in Mining Vancouver).

The 39 participating team members successfully raised $20,470, making our grand total for the past 7 years $184,708 raised.

From 2006 to 2013, 281 volunteers made it possible for WIMBC to raise $184,708 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF). The funds will be used for research projects, fellowships and community based grants in support of the CBCF’s vision of creating a future without breast cancer. The Foundation also spreads education and awareness about prevention and understanding of the disease.

Thanks to the very hard-working individual fundraisers on the team, as well as our Corporate Fundraisers, Teck Resources (Platinum Sponsor), and Pan American Silver (Gold Sponsor), we were able to surpass our goal, which will help create a future without breast cancer, raise awareness, celebrate cancer survivors and pay tribute to loved ones.

If you know of anyone who would like to take part in the October 2016 run, either to be a participant on our team, or be a corporate donor, please contact us at
