Get to know our two 2014 female fighters stepping into the ring in support of PMCF

An Introduction to Jane Watson and Dawn Ramsay-Brown

Please allow us to introduce you to two of our Official 2014 FTEC Fight Team members. Both Jane Watson and Dawn Ramsay-Brown have been hard at work training for their match at our 2014 black-tie gala event held on May 31st, 2014. In addition they have been working hard to raise donation dollars from friends, family and co-workers in support of their fight benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. Would you like to help them reach their fundraising goals and donate on behalf of one of these two fantastic women?
Both Jane and Dawn have written a personal piece as to answer the question “why?” they are stepping into the ring to help raise funds and awareness for this important cause…


Dawn Ramsay-Brown

Ramsey-BrownCancer takes more than lives; it steals memories that deserve to be created. My name is Dawn Ramsay-Brown and I am fighting for all the memories that are still to come. While our family has experienced loss and seen incredible recovery, both have left me with the commitment to do more.
The Fight To End Cancer presented an opportunity to better my own physical state and help support a hospital that performs nothing short of miracles everyday. As a small business owner of an advertising agency called Off to Market Inc., my hours and client demands are often unpredictable. Fight To End Cancer & Kingsway Boxing have helped work with me to create training and conditioning schedules to make this event a part of my journey. This is something I would not have been able to do without their support. It is such a privilege to wake up with a healthy body every day and I am incredibly thankful to be able to participate in the FTEC.

Jane Watson

watsonI work in the field of career management as a Vice President, Consulting for Optimum Talent, leaders in the career management industry. Working one-on-one with clients through self assessment, establishing targets and effective messaging, positioning them to achieve career success.
I build strong relationships with corporate clients and develop new business in the areas of career management, coaching, assessment and executive search.
Participating in the Fight To End Cancer is an honour. Too many people in my life have been affected by cancer. It devastates their lives and those of their loved ones. They have faced it with courage and grace – head on. If I can do one small thing to advance the fight to find a cure in our lifetime, I will.
Training for the Fight to End Cancer is a challenge (that might be a slight understatement), more like an enormous challenge! So, as I train I keep those I love, who have faced cancer, in my thoughts – family, friends and colleagues. They are my inspiration.
