Pink Truck Tour

October 1-31, 2018

The Mississauga Fire Fighters Benevolent Fund is excited to launch this year’s Pink Truck Tour presented by Toyotoshi Group Canada in support of cancer care at Trillium Health Partners (THP)!

Last year, THP treated close to 5,000 new cancer patients, and with the support of the community we have the opportunity to continue providing the important equipment and spaces they need to continue to deliver world-class treatment of this terrible disease.

We invite you to help make a difference in the lives of people affected by cancer by purchasing a Pink Truck t-shirt for only $20 (no tax) either online* or off the truck throughout the month of October!

For a full list of stops, please visit the Pink Truck Tour website.

Can’t make it to any of the locations, but still want to help? No problem! Consider making a donation to THP’s cancer centre by clicking here.

Help spread the word by posting a photo of you (and your friends & family) wearing your Pink Truck Tour t-shirts! Be sure to #PinkTruckTour and tag @MFFA_Benevolent & @TrilliumHealth.
