In 2006, after the untimely passing of Ted Ticknor, former CEO & President of Mr. Lube Canada, we joined the fight against prostate cancer. Our participation began with support of the Vancouver Prostate Centre at VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, and soon extended to sponsoring Vancouver’s Tournament for Life.
In recent years, our participation has increased. With the expansion of the Tournament for Life into Toronto and Calgary, we have increased our fight against this disease. And this, along with our support for Prostate Cancer Canada has resulted in the Mr. Lube Foundation donating over $3 million to prostate cancer research.
We’ve also established the Ted Ticknor Memorial Award for prostate cancer research, education and awareness. Each year, awards are presented to two individuals in the community for their outstanding contribution to the fight against prostate cancer.
