2017 To Be Biggest Year Yet For Fight To End Cancer

The Fight To End Cancer is not just one event, it is a year long – many would say lifelong – fundraising mission that is celebrated each year in a monumental way.  On the night of the gala event, a group of white-collar working men and women, with no prior competitive boxing experience, fight it out on stage.  This fully licensed, amateur boxing match, is to raise money and awareness for cancer research.  The event is preceded by eight gruelling months of training and fundraising on the part of the fight team.   There is also year long preparation by everyone involved in FTEC, which includes close to 200 volunteers and staff members!

The 2017 Fight To End Cancer gala will be held at Old Mill Toronto on Saturday May 27th.  This will be the 6th annual gala brought to you by our presenting partners Landscape Plus and Combustion, and it’s by far the biggest event we have held yet!  We are excited that our master of ceremonies for the evening is none other than Global News’ own Angie Seth.  Angie is the weekend anchor for Global News at 6pm and 11pm.
