TORONTO, Nov. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Toronto Paramedic Services and the Toronto Paramedic Association (TPA) raised funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

This fundraiser has been a great success. The Toronto Paramedic Association will be donating $10,000 to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday Nov. 3, 2014. A formal cheque presentation will be held. Media are welcome to attend.
