CIBC Run for the Cure 2018 - Physics Grad and Undergrad Students Represent!

Ryerson Physics runners pose for a photo after fundraising $1800 at the 5km CIBC Run for the Cure.

On Sunday, September 30th, Ryerson Physics runners hit the pavement in the CIBC Run for the Cure!

The run was organized by our Biomedical Physics graduate students and Medical Physics undergrads. Despite the cool, overcast conditions, 18 of our Physics students and friends met up bright and early at U of T's King's College Circle start zone and set out on the 5km course.

All together we raised well over $1800 dollars! Funds raised from the run go toward supporting breast cancer research, a cause near and dear to many of the participants. And since much of our research here in Ryerson's Department of Physics focuses on improving cancer diagnostics and treatment, we know all too well how important this fight is.

It was an amazing event and we encourage everyone to support the cause and get involved next year!

Special thanks to Charlotte Ferworn (BPGSU) and Monica Bell Villa (MPCU) for organizing.
