THE BREAST CANCER SOCIETY OF CANADA
Mother's Day Walk 2005
"Take a Short Walk to End Breast Cancer in the Long Run"
The Breast Cancer Society of Canada and cleo, ladies wear clothing,
are teaming up again this year for a nationwide walk for a cure
on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 8th, 2005
Last year, with the addition of cleo ladies wear as a partner,
over $70,000 dollars was raised for Canadian research into breast
cancer - the disease women fear most. Since the Mother's Day Walk
started in 1991 in Point Edward, Ontario, many thousands of dollars
have been raised and this year promises to become even more successful!
"The 2004 Mother's Day Walk will be by far the biggest mall
walk yet to raise funds to find a cure for breast cancer,"
says Barbara Bone, vice president, development, of the Breast Cancer
Society of Canada (BCSC). "We are thrilled to be working with
cleo and anticipate that many of cleo's customers, other stores
in each mall location, and members of the community who wish to
end this dreadful disease, will join us."
"We care about, and want to contribute to, the lives of local
women in the community," says cleo's Director of Stores, Shelly
Redmond. "That is why cleo supports the BCSC and the valuable
work that they do." A percent of sales of specific items in
cleo ladies wear stores is also a year round testament to cleo's
commitment to BCSC.
Now is the time to get involved! Walks will be held at 70 or more
cleo mall locations across Canada. Pledge sheets are available at
all store locations or from the Breast Cancer Society of Canada's
head office in Sarnia, Ontario. This year, you can also pledge online
at www.mothersdaywalk.ca - for those who don't live close to a cleo
Top fundraisers will receive incentive prizes of cleo gift certificates
and the top fundraiser in Canada will win a beautiful gift basket
from the BCSC.
