CIBC Bank Manager Allen Reale walked the extra mile in 'her' shoes on Friday, September 29 for the annual CIBC Run for the Cure, to bring awareness to and raise funds for breast cancer. What started out as just a day wearing heels soon turned into so much more.

The local bank does not physically participate in the run, but they participate in a variety of fundraisers with all proceeds donated to the fund. At last report Valemount raised over $800 for the cause.  

Reale stated that, in addition to receiving a better understanding of breast cancer and how it impacts both men and women, he gained a whole new appreciation for women who wear heels on a regular basis.
