Fight To End Cancer

Placement Organization: Fight To End Cancer
Number of Possible Placements Available: 2
Working Site’s Location: 22 Jutland Road Unit B Toronto, Ontario

Company Bio:

Founded in 2011, the Fight To End Cancer has donated over $1.5 million dollars, in support of cancer research, with proceeds going directly to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

Presented by Landscape Plus Ltd. and Grafton Apparel Ltd., the year-long fundraising efforts of the Fight To End Cancer are celebrated each year in an event like no other. Featuring a new group of white-collar men and women, with no prior boxing experience, Fight To End Cancer’s annual black-tie gala concludes months of their intense training, in a sanctioned Olympic-style boxing event.
Fight To End Cancer has quickly grown to become a premium fundraiser and showcases these brave individuals, as they lace up their gloves and step into our ring to help knock out cancer.

Our gala event is just one part of an ongoing fundraising effort by Fight To End Cancer, which will continue throughout the year and whose success will in large part, rely on community teamwork and continued media exposure.
