Canadian Olympian Mandy Bujold Joins Presenting Partners Landscape Plus At The Fight To End Cancer 2017

Representing Canada in the Rio 2016 Olympic games and working tirelessly to achieve her dreams, Mandy has a lot to fight for. Though she has her hands full with 4-6 hour training days, Mandy still finds the time to fight for the things she believes in. This year, Mandy and her fiancé, Reid McIver will be joining us in the Fight To End Cancer 2017 as guests of our presenting partners, Landscape Plus.


 

Mandy Bujold is one of the top athletes in the world and has dedicated her life to both the sport of boxing and her country. Her career and success in boxing has been an inspiration to the Fight To End Cancer, since its conception. Jennifer Huggins, founder of Fight To End Cancer (FTEC), has been working closely with Mandy for years, sharing the ring with her as a referee for many of her fights. In Jennifer’s own words, she shares how Mandy’s strength and dominance in the sport of boxing has inspired her:

“Mandy has been a true ambassador of the sport, inspiring our own FTEC family and friends. Her dedication and perseverance led to achieving her ultimate dream of making it to the Olympics. She has influenced athletes around the world to achieve their dreams and to step into the ring to fight for what you believe in. After Mandy attended the Fight To End Cancer Gala in 2015, our FTEC team cheered her on ringside at the PanAm Games, in Toronto, where she won Canada Gold. Representing Canada at the 2016 Olympic Games, she continues to inspire us all!”

A key component to the Fight To End Cancer Gala, is the promotion of women in boxing. Through this initiative, each year’s co-Main Event features a female bout, which always proves to be the “fight of the night”. For the past three years, we have been honoured to have Mandy attend our Gala, as a medal presenter for our co-Main Events featuring our women’s bout.

Representing Canada in the Rio 2016 Olympic games and working tirelessly to achieve her dreams, Mandy has a lot to fight for. Though she has her hands full with 4-6 hour training days, Mandy still finds the time to fight for the things she believes in. This year, Mandy and her fiancé, Reid McIver will be joining us in the Fight To End Cancer 2017 as guests of our presenting partners, Landscape Plus.

“Cancer has affected some of the most important people in my life and it’s a disease that affects many people on a daily basis. I lost my grandfather to cancer when I was young and seeing what he went through, truly affected me. To have the opportunity to “fight” cancer through Fight to End Cancer and the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation is my way of fighting for those family members and friends I’ve lost to cancer.”

We are so proud to have Mandy representing Canada at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio and we are honoured to have her as an ambassador of the Fight To End Cancer.
