The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Yard Sale for the Cure is a series of yard sales that take place on May 23 in local communities across Canada in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Every dollar raised through Yard Sale for the Cure goes towards breast cancer research, health promotion, advocacy, education and awareness programs.
Started in 2005 by Rachael Smith, a breast cancer survivor, who along with friends and family held the first yard sale in the Toronto Beach community. Yard Sale for the Cure, now in its sixth year as a fundraising event for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, has raised over $1,800,000.
