Fashion for a Cause: Running Room Canada Partners with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - July 14, 2005) - The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) and Running Room Canada are proud to announce the Pink Ribbon Fashion Show, taking place July 15, 2005, at the Gallery in the Pacific Palisades Hotel in Vancouver. It celebrates the launch of the Running Room's new line of Fit-Wear clothing, in conjunction with a cheque presentation of $80,000 to the CBCF - the latest proceeds of Running Room's ongoing campaign in support of the Foundation's commitment to a future without breast cancer.

"As a part of our sponsorship program we have developed a fashionable and sporty 'Pink Ribbon' product line," says John Stanton, Founder of Running Room Canada. "A donation from each purchase of the 'Pink Ribbon' Fit-Wear product goes to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation."

Jan Engemoen, Executive Director of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, BC/Yukon Chapter, expresses her gratitude to the national fitness and lifestyle store. "Running Room Canada has been a huge supporter of the CBCF for more than a decade, and has been a National Sponsor of our signature fundraising event, the CIBC Run for the Cure, since 1994," she said. "We're ecstatic that in recent years they have raised even more funds through the Pink Ribbon line of clothing!"

The Running Room's walk/run clinics help prepare participants for the CBCF CIBC Run For the Cure on Sunday October 2, 2005. The clinics also encourage a healthy lifestyle, which is one of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation's top 10 things one can do for breast cancer prevention.
