TORONTO: Over the past five years engineering firm Hatch has raised $1 million in support of Toronto’s Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
Hatch employees have done so by raising funds and participating in the annual Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer tournament.
This year’s tournament saw 10 teams comprised of 100 Hatch employees suit up for the event at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, after raising funds from their colleagues in support of the cause. For the fifth year in a row Hatch topped the list of corporate participants, raising a total of $206,000.
“Over the past five years, we have lost three of our road hockey teammates to cancer,” said Bruce MacKay, managing director of Hatch, and an ambassador and honorary chair for the event. “These were young people in the prime of their lives. We must find a solution to the cancer puzzle, and the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation is a key player to finding a cure.”
Hatch is headquartered in Mississauga, Ont., and boasts 9,000 employees, with work experience in more than 150 countries and regional offices across the globe.
