We are all inspired for different reasons but believe in a common purpose, to help Princess Margaret Hospital achieve their goal to Conquer Cancer in Our Lifetime. We are proud to contribute in a small way to this effort and will create a double win, raising funds for PMHF and supporting amateur athletics.”
