FortisTCI has presented the Turks and Caicos Islands National Cancer Society with a $5,000 sponsorship to assist with supporting the entity’s ongoing programs, including the annual Breast Cancer Awareness Walk-a-thon, which will be held on Saturday, October 30.
FortisTCI President and CEO Ruth Forbes made the presentation on Tuesday, October 5, to the Society’s President, Veronica Rigby, and former president Rosemary Jolly.
FortisTCI is a long-standing sponsor of the National Cancer Society and over the years has supported programs such as the annual walk-a-thon and the Society’s Night for the Fight event.
"We are proud to once again show our support for the National Cancer Society and the very important work it does, said FortisTCI President and CEO Ruth Forbes. “Cancer is a disease that touches almost everyone in our community, whether directly or indirectly, and it is vital that we have a dedicated organization like the National Cancer Society that continues to educate the community, and provide tangible support to cancer patients. As we mark October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we hope this donation will assist in enabling the Society to expand its outreach efforts.”
National Cancer Society President Veronica Rigby remarked, “On behalf of everyone at the Society, I thank FortisTCI for their continued support. Beyond this sponsorship and their financial commitment through the years, we know we can also count on FortisTCI employees to support our activities. We have a partnership that works well together, as we do everything we can to make a positive difference in the lives of those we serve.”
