In light of the current situation, in consultation with our partners and the FTEC Fight Team, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Fight To End Cancer for 2020. We are working to reestablish dates for and will be in touch with all event partners, sponsors and attendees when new dates have been identified.

Fight for the Future of Henry and Eddie

Grafton Apparel has been a proud partner of The Fight to End Cancer since 2014 and has become a key presenting partner since 2020. Thanks to their immense support and nationwide initiatives, The Fight to End Cancer has gained nearly $650,000 in donations since 2017 and despite such a challenging year, 2021 was their BIGGEST and most SUCCESSFUL year yet, bringing in a whopping $255,000 during their in-store campaign.

Grafton’s 2021 Campaign

Grafton Apparel launched their in-store campaign to help support The Fight to End Cancer on September 13, 2021, which ran till November 21, 2021. They set out with a goal of $250,000 and thanks to their incredible dedication and cooperation, the campaign brought in an exceeding $255,000 in donations, making this year the BIGGEST success yet!!!

Grafton Apparel made some executive decisions to ensure that this year was one of their best yet, including steering away from their silver theme to a more red theme in order to reflect their support in The Fight to End Cancer. They also added a key-ring/key-chain to their collection, tailoring to both men and women, which would be given as tokens of their gratitude to donations over $20.00


With loads of new initiatives, such as who raised the most donation Pizza parties, raffles, draws, prizes and talent shows, Grafton Apparel, along with their partnering companies, outdid themselves and The Fight To End Cancer could not be more grateful.
