Running for a good cause
The Gaels men’s rugby team can add another win to its long list of achievements. Players have raised more than $125,000 for breast cancer research over the past decade, making them one of the largest local donors.
The team’s long-time involvement in the annual CIBC Run for the Cure led to national exposure in print and web ads for this year’s event, which was held on Sunday, less than 24 hours after the Gaels beat Western 13-12 in London to remain undefeated this season.
Money raised for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation goes to research, education and awareness programs to create a future without breast cancer.
