Do I need to have 10 members to form a team?

No. You can have as many or as few members as you would like to form a team. However, teams with fewer than 10 members will not receive t-shirts with your team’s name on the back, instead they will receive regular event t-shirts.

Can I register my team the day of the event?

Yes! Teams can register at anytime including on the day of the CIBC Run for the Cure. However, in order to receive team t-shirts, you will need to register your team of 10 or more by Thursday, September 14, 2017 to allow the Canadian Cancer Society enough time to print your team’s name on the back of the t-shirts.

Teams who register after September 14, 2017 will receive the regular event t-shirts.

What is a multi-site team?

Multi-site teams are teams that are registered in two (2) or more locations. Multi-site teams must also register in one of the five categories (Corporate, Friends and Family, School, Women’s, or Post-Secondary Challenge).

If I make a donation to my team, will I receive a tax receipt?

Yes, any contribution made to the CIBC Run for the Cure is tax deductible.

What happens if my donor incorrectly donates to my team?

If a donor mistakenly donates to your team and would like to transfer the donation to an individual participant, the donor must contact our Donor Services department by October 31, 2017. After the October 31 date, team donations are non-transferable as the fundraising component of this program has closed.
