CIBC FirstCaribbean Managers Lorraine Johnson and Duquesa Dean enlist the help of their young assistants at the CIBC FirstCaribbean Car Wash and dollar-drive to raise funds for the cure.

NASSAU, Bahamas — Sister-to-Sister Breast Cancer Support Group, The Bahamas Breast Cancer Initiative Foundation, and the Cancer Societies in Abaco, Eleuthera, Grand Bahama and New Providence will all benefit from the funds raised at the CIBC First Caribbean’s 5th Annual “Walk for the Cure” on Sunday October 5th from Goodman’s Bay at 7 a.m.

In the lead up to the event CIBC management and staff have scheduled a multitude of team building and fund-raising events to benefit local Cancer research and care organisations.

Since August, bank employees have been engaged in on and off-site fund raising activities nation-wide to add to the donations that will be raised from the “Walk for the Cure” event on October 5th.

The Bank kicked off the fundraising activities with a weekly jeans-day fundraiser, where every casual Friday until the Walk for the Cure, employees, for a small contribution, could wear jeans to work to show their support.

A dash of fun and panache was added when male-employees were invited to enter to win a, “Real Men Wear Pink” photo competition. Male employees dressed to impress in their best pink outfits and submitted a photo in exchange for a small donation.
