Fight To End Cancer 2023 Gala Official Media Day Weigh-In @ El Mocambo, Thurs.,May 18th,2023 & Gala @ The Old Mill-Sat.,May 27th,2023.
By A.J.Lam and Jody Glaser
Sponsors, VIP guests and media had the opportunity May 18th to attend a special weigh-in at the legendary El Mocombo. Let me explain. You see these young men and women have been training in Olympic style boxing for the past 6 months (several others 3 years) all to prepare for the big event Saturday May 27th when the 10th Annual Fight To End Cancer black tie gala takes place at the Old Mill Toronto.
When the young FTEC 2023 fighters took to the stage this night we heard that many are doing this because of personal story of losing a loved one to cancer. Sadly we all can relate to that. All proceeds this year will again go to support work done by the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. More information and gala ticket sales can be found at http://www.fighttoendcancer.com
FTEC is an amazing organization raising funds for the world-leading cancer research and treatment done at Princess Margaret Hospital. Fight To End Cancer uses pugilistic competitions in its gala to metaphorically encourage people to contribute to its campaign.
“We’re Stepping In The Ring.
Defeat Is Not An Option.
We’re taking the fight to cancer. Join us in supporting the cutting-edge cancer research at the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
FIGHT TO END CANCER”
“WE’RE BACK… DEFEAT IS NOT AN OPTION!
