What is the BRIGHT Run?


What is the BRIGHT Run?

The BRIGHT Run is an annual fundraising event in support of Juravinski Cancer Centre.

What is the date of the 2020 BRIGHT Run/Walk?

This year’s event takes place virtually on Saturday, September 12, 2020! Register or subscribe to our newsletter for updates.

Do I have to actually run/walk?

No. You can walk, jog, bring your dog, push your baby in a stroller – it’s your choice. Participate as a team or as an individual. Set your own pace and enjoy!

What happens if it rains?

BRIGHT Run goes on rain or shine!


Q. How much is the registration fee?

The registration fee is $30 for Adults and $10 for youth (age 16 and under). The registration fee helps cover the costs associated with putting on the event so that donations can go directly to breast cancer research.

Can I get a tax receipt for my registration fee?

No. Registration fees are non-refundable and non-tax deductible.

When will tax receipts for BRIGHT Run donations be sent out?

Donate online and you’ll get an electronic tax receipt within 30 minutes. The Foundation aims to issue tax receipts for offline donations by February in order to allow donors to claim the deduction on their income tax return.


I want to submit my donation forms before the event. Can I send them by mail?

Yes. Donation forms and cheques can be mailed to the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre Foundation (address below) at least 10 days before the event to allow for processing time. Do not send cash in the mail.
