We’re In This Fight Together
Vancouver, BC – On Side Restoration is pleased to announce their continued partnership as a Platinum National Sponsor with Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade (WICC).
“On Side Restoration has always had a very close connection with WICC back in Western Canada. Generally we support our employees to give of their time to charitable causes, but especially to WICC. On Side staff have held positions on the WICC Board from Chair and Director roles, to volunteers on event day. We also helped originate and run the golf fundraiser for over 10 years that now proudly sports WICC’s name. Giving back and fighting alongside the insurance industry for such an important cause is what keeps us returning as a National Sponsors” stated Craig Hogarth, President and owner of On Side Restoration.
This past year On Side also stepped up by entering a team in the Toronto Relay For Life (RFL) event that took place at Downsview Park in June. The On Side Allies comprised of 20 individuals made up of both On Side employees and family members. The company hopes to have even larger team turn out in 2018 and their fingers are also crossed for good weather.
Marketing and Communications Manager for On Side and Communications Director for WICC Ontario Chapter’s Board of Directors, Sonia Manson stated, “It was definitely a wet relay this past summer but our spirits for the event were not dampened in the least. If anything our group was excited to share with other staff what took place and what they’re looking forward to next year. The new event format is much more family friendly with a 6pm-12am run time.”
Ms. Manson, RFL Team Captain continued, “Although we raised additional funds for the Canadian Cancer Society, even more importantly we helped to raise awareness for cancer. As I get older I see more of my friends and family members being negatively impacted by this intrusive disease. It is not affecting ‘them’, an unknown individual that we’re not aware of or close to. It is affecting ‘us’ and we need to help each another. With enough focus, energy and resources, finding a cure for cancer in our lifetime is a possibility. To this end, I’m grateful to have the opportunity to take action through WICC.”
As per the standard National Sponsor commitment, On Side pays $15,000 per year, for a total of $45,000 over a three year period. This is On Side’s second term committing as WICC National Sponsors.
