Take time to Think Pink: Register for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation 
CIBC Run for the Cure 
CIBC employees to celebrate Think Pink Week in branches across Canada 
TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) - From September 16 
to 20, CIBC employees across Canada will be hosting fundraising events and 
encouraging people to participate in this year's Canadian Breast Cancer 
Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, taking place on October 6 in 66 communities 
across Canada. 
"With one in nine women in Canada diagnosed with breast cancer in her 
lifetime, supporting this cause is something CIBC employees are very 
passionate about," said Christina Kramer, Executive Vice-President, CIBC and 
National Run Champion. "Think Pink Week kicks-off our official fundraising for 
the 2013 CIBC Run for the Cure. Last year alone, Team CIBC helped the Canadian 
Breast Cancer Foundation raise more than $30 million for research, treatment, 
and awareness programs." 
This year, CIBC is working with Tracy Moore, Host of Cityline, and Scott 
McGillivray, Host and Executive Producer of HGTV Canada's Income Property, to 
encourage Canadians to get involved with CIBC Run for the Cure and show their 
support for the cause. 
For Ms. Moore, a three-time participant and dedicated contributor to the 
cause, getting involved and fundraising means making a difference. 
"I look around me and the number of cancer survivors is growing 
exponentially," says Ms. Moore, whose family and friends have battled breast 
cancer. "This tells me that finding a cure can and will happen if we dedicate 
enough time and resources to great initiatives like the CIBC Run for the Cure." 
Scott and Tracy will participate in CIBC's Think Pink Week kick off at 
Commerce Court in Toronto on September 17 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm., one of 
the many Think Pink Week events happening across Canada. 
"I have lost immediate family and friends to cancer and I'll do what it takes 
to make sure that doesn't happen again," said Mr. McGillivray, who 
participated in the Run for the first time last year. "I know cancer can be 
beaten and I am hoping to be part of the solution by inspiring more Canadians 
to get involved in the CIBC Run for the Cure." 
Canadians are encouraged to take part in this year's CIBC Run for the Cure on 
Sunday, October 6. Participant fundraising efforts will help support the 
Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in realizing its vision of creating a world 
without breast cancer. 
"The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is proud of the longstanding support of 
CIBC, true champions in helping realize our vision of creating a future 
without breast cancer," said Jane Parsons, co-CEO, Canadian Breast Cancer 
Foundation. "We hope Canadians are inspired to take part in Think Pink Week 
activities across Canada and support the CIBC Run for the Cure." 
CIBC is in its 17th year as title sponsor of Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation 
CIBC Run for the Cure. Visit your local CIBC branch for more details on Think
