'CBCF - Run for the Cure 2006 TEAM NYGÅRD Spirit Nationwide'
The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Run for the Cure 2006 was the MOST SUCCESSFUL Run EVER in its 15 year history. Over 170,000 enthusiastic Canadians walked & ran in 50 communities across the country. As of SUN OCT1, a record $23.4M was raised to help create a future WITHOUT breast cancer!!!
Peter Nygård & NYGÅRD International have been supporting the fight against breast cancer for well over a decade now & it is absolutely our corporate 'Charity of Choice'.
2006 is NYGÅRD's 6th year as a NATIONAL CHAMPION Sponsor & to date NYGÅRD has provided over 950,000 T-shirts to all of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Run for the Cure participants across Canada!
4 years ago, in addition to the white Participant Run T-shirts, NYGÅRD wanted to do something special for BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS: A pink SURVIVOR T-shirt.
The 'sea of pink' seen on Run Day stirred mixed emotions … We felt a tinge of sadness because of what this colour has come to represent ... lives lost & lives changed because of breast cancer. BUT we also felt Joy & Antipicipation because every speck of pink at every Run site across the country represented a Victory & HOPE for the future.
Technology, science, medical breakthroughs & each survivor gives us hope that a cure will be found to put an END to breast cancer. The VISUAL message expressed through the # of survivors who wore these pink T-shirts on Run Day emphasizes & highlights the importance of raising funds to support research, so that in years to come, our children & grand-children will not have to wear a pink T-shirt because a much needed cure will have been found. Until that day comes ... & it WILL ... we at NYGÅRD pledge our CONTINUING support!
