The money was raised from the bank’s 2019 Walk For The Cure, one of the region’s largest cancer fundraising and education programmes. CIBC FirstCaribbean partners each year with national cancer organisations in the 16 Caribbean countries in which it operates to raise funds to purchase equipment used in the diagnosis of patients, finance counselling for patients and their families, and raise awareness through education programmes.
