The 2014 Optometry Rack Pack team completed the CIBC Run for the Cure on Sunday October 5, 2014 to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. In their second year as a team, there were 34 Rack Pack members including faculty, staff and students as well as family and friends of University of Waterloo School of Optometry and Vision and Science. Team members walked or ran in 1 km and 5 km races at Conestoga College, Doon Campus in Kitchener.
The Rack Pack was honoured with the "Post-Secondary Team Challenge Award" for the institution with the most funds raised to support the cause.
The Run for the Cure was inspiring to all who attended – so be ready to tie up your laces for next year’s event. Way to go, team!
