Windset Farms® donating October’s proceeds to Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation

Windset Farms® has been involved with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (BC/Yukon Region) since 2012, and last year, raised over $65,000 for the cause. This year, in addition to their renewed regional sponsorship, Windset Farms hopes to raise more money for breast cancer research, education and awareness programs.

At this year’s Run for the Cure, held on Sunday October 5th, Windset Farms will be actively present with a company team, as well as donating cases of Concerto® Grape Tomatoes and Fresco® Mini Cucumbers for participants and supporters at every Run for the Cure site in British Columbia. Donations will go beyond the event, with 10% of net proceeds from select Concerto® Grape Tomato packages going to the CBCF for the entire month of October.



“We support healthy living and enjoy giving back to our community”, says John Newell, COO of Windset Farms®. “It’s always great to see the thousands of participants coming out to support this great cause, helping to raise money to find solutions to build a future without breast cancer”, Newell adds.

Specially marked packages of Concerto® Grape tomatoes can be found in retail stores throughout Western Canada for the month of October.

About the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation / CIBC Run for the Cure

On October 6th, thousands of men and women across Canada will come together for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. This event is dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research, education and awareness programs. The Foundation itself was founded by a group of women who had a vision to bring a voice to those affected by breast cancer. Today, it has stayed true to that vision and has continued to be at the forefront of a movement to raise awareness and mobilize action on breast cancer.
