Everything You Need To Know About #FTEC2019

About Fight To End Cancer…
The Fight To End Cancer (FTEC) is a year round initiative carried out by ambassadors, sponsors and volunteers worldwide. Over $1,000,000.00 has been donated to date since our inaugural year in 2012. Funds raised by FTEC are donated directly to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. Each year we celebrate the incredible hard work and dedication of our FTEC family with a black-tie charity boxing gala. This gala showcases 10 men and women who represent our Official Fight Team. More About Us or…

2019 Highlights

Who Are The #FTEC2019 Fighters?
What do you call someone who elects to make a 6 month commitment to do hundreds of hours of physical training, and raise thousands of dollars for cancer research — all while maintaining their regular commitments to work and family, as well as getting punched in the face?  You call them a hero!  And what do you call a group of 10 of these heroes?  You call them the Fight To End Cancer 2019 Fight Team.
With the $1 million dollar barrier broken, what is the next big dream for The Fight to End Cancer?  That’s easy…$2 million dollars in total contributions.
We celebrated reaching our Million Dollar Milestone in direct donations to The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, in 2018.  Our partners even had the honour of taking a tour through the high-tech facility at Toronto General Hospital, where much of the funds are directed in order to successfully complete nearly 9000 cancer related operations annually.
The past 7 years flew by and felt almost effortless!  Want to know what isn’t as easy?  Committing to over 6 months of intensive physical training, raising thousands of dollars for cancer research – all while balancing your regular commitments to work and family.  Then, at the end, your reward is to step in the ring with another person who means to punch you in the face.  Making that commitment is exactly what these 10 incredible people have done!
The 2019 Fight Team, in combination with our presenting partners, Landscape Plus Ltd. and the newest addition to our top tier partners, Grafton Apparel Ltd., are the first group of fighters to take that next step in FTEC history.  Their collective goal is to move towards the $2 million dollar mark in total contributions raised by FTEC in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.  Each one of this year’s fighters comes with uniquely personal motivation, but they all share one common goal:  to end cancer in our lifetime.
Let’s meet the 2019 Fight To End Cancer Fight Team.
