ReMax Nova's 2nd Annual Pink Campaign - Sold On A Cure
It’s official. REMAX nova has turned PINK! We, at REMAX nova, have always been strong supporters of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s (CBCF) quest to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research, mainly through our “Sold On a Cure” Program. In October, its our 2nd Annual Pink Campaign & time to take things to a whole new level. In an unprecedented company effort, we are going “PINK” for the month of October.
So, what do we mean by “PINK”?
Well almost all of our marketing efforts for the next 30 days will be, you guessed it…PINK. This includes all 500+ or so FOR SALE signs being replaced with specially designed PINK signs. In addition all newspaper ads, Real Estate Book, Website, TV ads and of course kicking the month off with members of our team participating in the CIBC Run For The Cure this Sunday, Sept 30th. If you are able, please donate to this terrific cause that affects 1 in 9 Canadian women & in 2012, there will be an estimated 22,700 more Canadian women diagnosed with breast cancer. TO DONATEhttps://secure3.convio.net/cbcf/site/Donation2?idb=355374326&df_id=1605&1605.donation=form1&FR_ID=1415&PROXY_ID=2551316&PROXY_TYPE=20&JServSessionIdr004=fda8kq9ova.app337b
Breast cancer is not limited to women. Man can develop breast cancer as well but is rare ( Fewer than one per cent of all breast cancers occur in men which equates to approximately 227 men in Canada being diagnosed in 2012 ).
We look forward to an exciting month ahead & thank of those who continue to support this cause & REMAX nova. For more details on how you can help visit the CBCF Atlantic Chapter website by clicking on the photo above.

It is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in Canadian women and the third leading cause of death after heart disease, and lung cancer.
