Towing Toronto to Donate Funds to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation

Towing Toronto to Participate in the Annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer

TORONTO, May 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Towing Toronto, the GTA's leading towing and roadside assistance services provider, will make a substantial donation to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation UHN. The company will participate in the annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer event that is scheduled to take place during June 8-9, 2013, and donate 5% of all its towing service revenues during the last week of May. The said donation will go to Towing Toronto's attorney, a veteran rider and fund raiser participant, Bruce Margles and his team.

Since its inception in 2008, The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer remains the most prominent cycling fundraiser in Canada, having raised more than $80.2 million for The Princess Margaret in Toronto alone and $149.3 million for different cancer research institutes across Canada. The annual event is a 270 km cycling journey from Toronto to Niagara Falls.

Funds raised at the event will go towards programs, such as clinical trials, world class tumor banks and advanced molecular profiling laboratories. The funds will also allow Princess Margaret to invest in other important programs, such as cancer stem cells, cancer metabolism and microenvironment, immunotherapy and major site programs, such as lung cancer, prostate cancer and women's cancers programs.

Towing Toronto executive Nick Woodsby was quoted as saying, "Towing Toronto seeks to reach a helping hand to the local community. Hopefully, our donation will make a change in the lives of people who are now fighting for their health. We wholeheartedly appreciate and support Mr. Margles' goal to raise over $25,000 and wish the best of luck to every single rider, donor, sponsor, volunteer and crew member. Helping save lives is truly a holy mission. Chapeau!"
