Vernon runs for a cure

The annual Run for the Cure saw roughly 300 people come out and raised just over $20,000 towards a future without breast cancer

From dogs donning magenta scarves to little ones pretty in pink, Marshall Field took on a new hue Sunday.

The annual Run for the Cure saw roughly 300 people come out and raised just over $20,000 towards a future without breast cancer. Over 100,000 people came together in communities across Canada, raising an estimated $17 million.

Leading the pack of walkers and runners at the start of the event was a growing group of survivors. Among them was Vernon’s Sue Gilowski and her sister Gloria Humphrey, of Kamloops, both breast cancer survivors, proudly donned their survivor shirts as their bravery and fight was honoured by family and friends.

Anyone wishing to donate towards the event can still do so at cbcf.org/bcyukon
