On September 30th, the 2018 the CIBC Run For the Cure will be taking place in Toronto. As breast cancer continues to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women and touches the lives of so many families, the CIBC Run for the Cure gives families, friends, and supporters the opportunity to join together in honouring their loved ones, and making a real difference.
One of the many benefits of being a RE/MAX associate is our generosity and the strength of our RE/MAX network. We want our incredible network of over 11,000 Brokers & Agents to be represented. After all, it’s in our nature to give back!
Captain of the Toronto Team and RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Sales Representative Sarah Underhill has an important message for all RE/MAX Brokers & Agents in the Greater Toronto Area.
Read Sarah’s message below!
My name is Sarah Underhill and I work at RE/MAX Hallmark Realty in the Davisville Village area. I am honoured that the torch has been passed to me this year to Captain the RE/MAX Toronto Run for the Cure team. This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart as I lost my mother at a young age to breast cancer and she lost her mother to breast cancer as well. I have two beautiful daughters, 11 and 12, which makes raising as much money and awareness for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation very important to me.
The RE/MAX Toronto team has dwindled down in size to two of us. There are over 6,000 RE/MAX Realtors in Toronto, which means we should be one of the major corporate contributors but we are lacking the presence at the Run that we should have with our immense manpower. I want to take this opportunity, as the new Captain, to grow our RE/MAX team into a POWERHOUSE and I need your help!

It is important for all us to give back however we can. We all have mothers, daughters, wives, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends and girlfriends.
- Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death among Canadian women.
- An estimated 26,300 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada in 2017 and approximately 5,000 women died from the disease.
- A woman has a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Breast cancer death rates in women have decreased approximately 44% since 1988. This reduction likely reflects the impact of screening and improvements in treatment for breast cancer.
