Breast cancer research and education will be getting a boost from a yard sale in Tobermory.
The 9th annual Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Yard Sale for the Cure is scheduled for Saturday May 25th.
The one-day event, presented by RE/MAX, runs from 10am to 2pm at 7379 Highway 6 in Tobermory.
Donations of yard sale items are welcomed and appreciated.
Kathy Damaline of RE/MAX says their office goal this year is 1 thousand dollars.
She adds the yard sale creates vital awareness and supports education, prevention and early detection efforts.
Proceeds will go directly to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, the largest dedicated supporter of breast cancer research in Canada.
Breast cancer impacts about 1 in 9 Canadian women and 1 in 200 men every year.
Since 2004 the RE/MAX group has donated about 3 million dollars to the Canadian Breast Cancer Society through various events such as the yard sale.
