The Northern Cancer Foundation and Triple M Metal announced the kickoff to the 11th annual Scrap Cancer challenge.
Running until Oct. 7, the event encourages the public to donate scrap metal and electronic waste, which is converted to cash to support the work of the Northern Cancer Foundation. The foundation raises funds and purchases equipment that supports the work of th Northeast Cancer Centre.
“Last year, Scrap Cancer raised over $46,000, and this year we are trying to double that amount!” the foundation said in a news release. “Every dollar raised during this drive will directly support priority equipment, research, and patient care at the Northeast Cancer Centre.”
