Hatch raises $1 million to conquer cancer

2016-10-18

Hatch has surpassed a significant milestone, raising more than $1 million dollars over five years in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, one of the top five cancer research facilities in the world.

For the past five years Hatch employees have demonstrated their commitment to finding a cure for cancer through their participation in the annual Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer tournament. This year’s tournament was held this past weekend at Woodbine Racetrack. 

More than 100 Hatch employees, organized into 10 teams, took part in the tournament, backed by generous donations from their colleagues. Also, for the fifth year running, Hatch won the Corporate Challenge Cup, which recognizes the company that has raised the most funds in a given year. For 2016, Hatch raised a total of $206,000 in support of ground-breaking cancer research and treatment at Princess Margaret.

Bruce MacKay, managing director of Hatch, is a long-standing ambassador and honorary chair for the event. “Participating in the Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer offers our employees a great vehicle to give back through the game we love. Giving is part of our culture and Princess Margaret and

Hatch have a strong, long-term partnership.”

Hatch employees first participated in the Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer in 2012 and the company has since won the Corporate Cup Challenge every year as the top fundraising organization. MacKay adds, “We’re proud to make such a significant impact through our involvement in this amazing event!”

The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is the largest institution of its kind in Canada devoting 100 percent to conquering cancer. Fundraising efforts support breakthrough research and discovery of new, more effective cancer-fighting therapies.
