Speaking of pink ribbon. I asked pink ribbon Canada if any of the run for the cure money is going to controversial Komen USA. Good news, no. All the pink ribbon money raised in Canada stays in Canada and Komen doesn't get any.

Thanks for your question, apologies for the delayed reply - we’re still catching up on our correspondence following the Run this past weekend.
So, to answer your question, no, the Foundation does not pay royalties to use the pink ribbon from Susan G Komen or any other organization. The Foundation has trademarked our version of the pink ribbon that you see in our logo. And no, we do not fund Susan G. Komen’s work in the US, we only fund initiatives here in Canada.
I hope this helps answer your question and please let me know if you have any further questions.
