‘Crystal Gala Gals’ participate in 2013 Run For The Cure

Crystal Gala committee members joined Premier Christy Clark's team in Vancouver for the CIBC Run for the Cure event.

  • Oct. 6, 2013 1:00 p.m.

2013 CIBC Run for the Cure Crystal Gala committee participants, Susan Bubra, Brittany Manulak, Gerri Charles, Dixie Jacobson, Dorothy Dyck, Chris Franklin, Amanda Rushton and Cindy Vanderveen ran on Premier Christy Clark’s team with many other supporters including Pamela Martin.  Each Gala Girl raised money individually for the Run for the Cure, but participated as one team to show strength in numbers.

Wearing their pink “Tie One On” ties, to help raise funds for the Crystal Gala Breast Health Unit at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital & Cancer Centre, the Crystal Gala committee joined 7,000 other runners, walkers & strollers to raise not only funds to help cure this disease but also to raise awareness about getting exams. Men, as well as women, can be found to have breast cancer and this is one very good reason to talk openly about it. ‘Pink Ties’ for $20 are available for purchase at MSA Ford, Abbotsford throughout the month.
