Trucking for A Cure is a support group on behalf of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation-Ontario, which consists of professional organizations and individuals of the
transportation industry. It not only raises awareness and funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation but also builds bridges between commercial drivers, the industry,
the public at large which hopes to unite trucking enthusiasts behind such a meaningful cause.
Funds raised at these events are used to fund research, build fellowships, and create breast health incentives across Ontario. The funds allow the Foundation to continue
working to improve the lives of those affected with breast cancer and continue research to battle the disease.
