Each year thousands of Canadians are touched by breast cancer. It not only impacts individuals living with the disease, but their families, friends and loved ones as well. October is a month to build awareness and pay tribute to those affected by it.

Looking for ways to join the fight for a cure in the Ottawa area? Here are two events that shouldn't be missed.

The 18th annual Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure takes place this Sunday October 4th 2009 in 56 communities across Canada. If you're not walking/running yourself, why not sponsor someone who is?

Marry Me Productions is playing host to Something White for Something Right at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier Hotel on Saturday November 7th 2009. Not only is this a great excuse to wear your wedding dress again (or anything white after labour day for that matter) but all proceeds are benefiting The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. This event is only a few tickets away from a sell out! So... what are you waiting for?
