MYRA's Run for the Cure

Date: 
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.
