MYRA's Run for the Cure

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

The MYRA Milers not only took to the pavement running for the 2011 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, but they also raised over $2500 to support this worthy cause. The Run for the Cure is Canada’s largest single day, volunteer-led fundraising event dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research, and education and health promotion initiatives. This year’s event took place Canada-wide on Sunday, October 2.

MYRA Systems hosted an online auction to raise money for the Cure and it was a huge success. From gift certificates to top hotels, Starbucks and massages to coffee makers and duffel bags to jewelry and nice pens – we had something for everyone. The money went to a good cause AND it was a ton of fun! Our own app development team created an interactive auction that was enjoyable, a little competitive.
