Fight To End Cancer (FTEC) is a local charity I have been happy to support for several years now. What began as a single annual charity boxing match, has now exploded to include year-round programming that further fundraises for FTEC’s main benefactor, the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
Through the main event in May, and the year-long fundraising efforts, FTEC has now donated over $1 million!
The organization was founded by Jennifer Huggins, a boxing gym owner and an international boxing referee. Though her efforts, the efforts of her partner Virgil and the incredibly supportive ambassadors, sponsors and volunteers worldwide, the organization continues to grow and remains one of the most exciting charitable organizations in Toronto.
The latest event to support FTEC is the Fight to End Cancer art show, a photography and art exhibit taking place during the month of May 2019, with all proceeds going to Fight To End Cancer.
There will also be a gallery event on May 7th. On the event night, there will be over 200 FTEC Family, Friends and media, the public is also encouraged to come and bring a few friends. The featured artists will have the opportunity to talk about their work at the event.
