A donation of sixty thousand dollars has been made to the St Lucia Cancer Society and the Faces of Cancer.

The amount was raised by CIBC FirstCaribbean at its fifth annual Walk for the Cure.

The local initiative coincides with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s CIBC Run for the Cure, and is held in each territory where CIBC FirstCaribbean operates throughout the Caribbean. A record number of people participated in this year’s Walk for the Cure, which was held simultaneously in Gros Islet and Vieux Fort.

The sum raised  was donated equally among the two organizations with each receiving 30 thousand dollars respectively.

The bank’s parent company, CIBC, has contributed to breast cancer research for more than 20 years, donating more than $20M CND annually to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation through its Run for the Cure.

Meanwhile, planning for the Walk for the Cure 2017 has already begun.
