A Message from BRIGHT Run chair Nancy McMillan

In our much-changed world of COVID-19, we all need safety and support – from our families, friends, communities and governments. 

I want you to know that the well-being of our BRIGHT Run community is my primary concern, as it is for all of us involved in organizing our 13th annual event, scheduled for Sept. 12. 

BRIGHT Run also wants to provide as much support as possible to our BRIGHT family, from the frontline workers in all capacities, to the breast cancer patients undergoing treatment, to our survivors. If you need us, we will do our best to help. Please contact us at info@brightrun.ca

On top of safety and support, having something to look forward to would no doubt BRIGHTen up our somewhat enclosed lives. So – BRIGHT Run 2020 is a GO folks! Full speed ahead! But it’s gonna look different.

Because of the ongoing impact of COVID-19, the BRIGHT Run executive has pivoted from an in-person event to a virtual celebration for Sept. 12, 2020. We want to ensure this year’s “family reunion” is both exhilarating and absolutely safe for all of us.

We welcome your suggestions as we prepare for this unique virtual event. Please contact us at info@brightrun.ca

We encourage you, despite the changes we are experiencing in our world, to continue to participate in the BRIGHT Run by registering, creating a team, raising money to the extent that it’s possible. We know many people are financially impacted. Please give them the opportunity to help if they’re able.

We also encourage you to visit our website at www.brightrun.ca, where we will post up-to-date information about our evolving celebration. Like us on Facebook and encourage your friends to do so as well.  

Breast cancer doesn’t stop because of COVID-19 and neither does the BRIGHT Run. There is still a great need for funding for local breast cancer research. BRIGHT Run is committed to continuing our efforts to support that research in our community. We hope you are too.
