October is Breast Cancer Action Month! Did you know that one in nine Canadian women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime?
The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) is Canada’s leading community-driven breast cancer charity dedicated to funding innovative research, health education and advocacy programs that aim to reduce the incidence of breast cancer, lower mortality rates and support women and their families who experience breast cancer.
CBCF is proud to recognize RE/MAX as a long standing partner and would like to thank you for your continued support. Together, we will create a future without breast cancer.
At CBCF, we recognize that RE/MAX agents take their social responsibilities within the community very seriously. RE/MAX has worked closely with CBCF for over two decades helping to raise much needed funds for breast cancer research, advocacy and education. To date, RE/MAX agents have raised over $1.8 million and that figure is growing every day
