INTRODUCING OUR FIRST OFFICIAL SPONSOR | IN OUR CORNER SINCE 2012
It is through the ongoing support of our highly-valued sponsors that allows Fight To End Cancer (FTEC) to continue being one of Toronto’s most prestigious fundraisers. One of these sponsors, in particular, is Xerox.
Our friends over at Xerox have proudly supported the Fight To End Cancer, since its inaugural year back in 2012, as our Official Print Partner.
As our Official Print Partner, Xerox has generously provided us printing services on all of our marketing materials; posters, banners, tickets, magazines etc., for a fraction of the cost. With each year, Xerox has consistently increased their level of support to us and the service they provide helps in making the experience for our guests, truly special.
The relationship between Xerox and Fight To End Cancer was first formed through a personal friendship between Xerox’s Business Development Executive for Xerox Services, Erin Schnepper, and FTEC’s Founder, Jennifer Huggins. Erin was instrumental in helping to develop the relationship with Xerox by introducing the concept of Fight To End Cancer to her colleagues.
Jennifer expressed the relationship Erin helped develop between Xerox and FTEC, as very special:
“I called up Erin one day and asked if she could meet. Without hesitation, or even knowing what the meeting was about, Erin proposed we meet that afternoon. Not only did Erin help facilitate a relationship that was integral to the success of the Fight To End Cancer, she also helped us secure our first official sponsor. She and Xerox are true heroes in the Fight To End Cancer.”
In her own words, Erin shares what it means for Xerox to be a part of the Fight To End Cancer:
“Xerox is proud to continue to sponsor the Fight To End Cancer, as we have since the inaugural event. Every one of us have been impacted by cancer. It is a cause that continues to impact our Xerox and personal communities. We believe the work that Jennifer Huggins and her team are committed to, is not only worthwhile, but necessary. As Winston Churchill said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” We all need to believe and demonstrate with our attitudes that we can find a cure for cancer. That’s what the Fight To End Cancer does. Corporate and community support is critical to enable the Princess Margaret to continue their quest for success in the fight to end cancer. Please give generously.”
Thank you for your ongoing support Xerox!
