Sudbury, ON – The Northern Cancer Foundation, in partnership with Triple M Metal, is thrilled to announce the resounding success of its 2023 Scrap Cancer campaign, which raised a staggering $111,583.67 to support cancer research, vital equipment purchases, and patient care at the Shirley and Jim Fielding Northeast Cancer Centre.

This incredible achievement marks a new pinnacle for the campaign, more than doubling its previous record of $68,000 in 2012. The Northern Cancer Foundation expresses its heartfelt gratitude to the entire community for making this remarkable feat possible, and a special thanks to Triple M Metal who played a pivotal role in ensuring the efficient collection, sorting, and weighing of materials from public drop-off bins.

The success of this year’s campaign was further bolstered by the generous contributions of monetary donors, including Weir ESCO – Sudbury, Vale (Totten Mine), M&G Fencing, Pioneer/Fisher Wavy, Bristol Machine Works, Nickel City Steel, Canadian Hardware Consultants, and Steelfab Sudbury. Their commitment to the cause exemplifies the power of community support.

“We are more than happy to help again this year,” shared Real Perras, owner of M&G Fencing. “Everyone is touched by cancer in one way or another, so it’s important that we support our cancer centre to ensure we have the best care possible.”

Public bin hosts, including Rammako’s Source for Adventure, Pharmasave Val Caron, Bianco’s Supercentre, and Rifles and Reels Game and Fish Club, provided convenient drop-off locations for participants across our community. The Northern Cancer Foundation extends its heartfelt thanks to everyone who dropped off scrap metal, appliances, waste electronics, and more at these locations or directly at Triple M Metal. The collective effort and commitment of our community to SCRAP CANCER really showed through with this year’s record fundraising total!
