Éminence supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month for 10th year in a row
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 6, 2016 /CNW/ -- Since 2007, Éminence Organic Skin Care has been donating funds to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation for breast cancer research and support. This year, Éminence presented a check for $141,502 to the Foundation at their annual CIBC Run for the Cure on October 2nd, 2016.
The CIBC Run for the Cure is a 5k or 1k walk or run that brings together an incredible community of people who have a personal connection to breast cancer and want to show their support and help raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. It is the largest single-day, volunteer-led event in Canada in support of breast cancer research. To date, the event has over 100,000 participants and raises over $20 million.
Éminence Organic Skin Care is proud to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. On October 2nd, a team of over 50 Éminence staff joined the thousands of participants and volunteers at the event in Vancouver, B.C. This year's generous donation - which was presented following the run - was a combination of funds raised through events within the corporate office, an added donation from the company's owners, and the proceeds of sales of the Éminence Organic Skin Care Sweet Red Rose Whip Moisturizer. Throughout the year, $5 from each retail-sized Sweet Red Rose Whip Moisturizer sold is dedicated to this cause.
"Helping those in need, especially those who are sick, is a cause near and dear to the heart of Éminence Organic Skin Care," says Boldijarre Koronczay, President of Éminence Organic Skin Care. "We are deeply committed to this cause, and the work that the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation does to benefit those fighting this disease."
Éminence is committed to giving back to the community and those in need through various charitable contributions and support, such as with the Éminence Kids Foundation, which aims to provide sick children in North America and Europe with nutritious, organic foods and juices to aid in their healing and recovery.

The team at Éminence Organic Skin Care would like to thank those who directly contributed to this cause through donations, Sweet Red Rose Whip Moisturizer purchases, and participation in the CIBC Run for the Cure.
