Seeing a need to support the blood cancer community, members of UFCW Canada and its Local Unions made a pledge to help the work of the LLSC in 1985. Over the years, its members have passionately organized countless fundraisers and made donations to ensure that research continue to advance and for support services to be available and accessible to those who need it. Today, UFCW Canada has contributed nearly $50 million to improve the lives of Canadians affected by blood cancers and remain the single largest supporter of the LLSC.
iA Financial Group
A longstanding ally of the blood cancer community, iA Financial Group and its employees have been rolling up their sleeves to raise funds for blood cancer research and services for over 17 years. In those years, iA Financial Group has participated in a number of fundraising events and made financial gifts including the commitment to match donations to the LLSC on an annual basis. Their contributions through fundraising and matching gifts stands at more than $1.6 million today.
Another long-time supporter of the LLSC, Marsh Canada launched a new fundraising event in 2021 named The Jim Abernethy Challenge in tribute to the athleticism and competitive spirit of their colleague and friend whom they lost to lymphoma. This initiative rallies together the insurance and professional services sectors to fundraise for the blood cancer cause and secures Marsh Canada’s ongoing efforts to raise funds through Light The Night.
