FEATURE FIGHTER | SEAN DONOVANPosted on
Each Friday we will be featuring one of the incredible men and women who have joined the Fight to End Cancer in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
Meet our #FeatureFighter, Sean Donovan
Sean is a father of two and is the Business Development Manager for the Toronto District of PCL Construction.
“I’ve seen friends, colleagues, and acquaintances all deal with their own battles against cancer; some winning while others sadly losing. And I know one thing for sure – I don’t want to see it ever again.”
The Fight to End Cancer is a one-of-a-kind experience. We ask our Fighters not only to raise funds, but to get in the ring and physically box one another.
So why has Sean joined the fight?
“In the past I’ve felt helpless, wondering what I could do to help. But in reality once the diagnosis has been made, there isn’t much of anything that any of us can do to help.
I realize now that where we can help – where I can help – is before the diagnosis occurs. Funding for the research associated with understanding and preventing cancer is what is required, and that’s why I’m participating in the 4th Annual Fight to End Cancer in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.”
Leading up to Fight Night, Sean has challenged himself to raise $50, 000. Yes, you read that correct. 50K. So far Sean has reached 30% of his goal, bringing in over $15, 000 for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. With his phenomenal dedication to this cause, we are sure that with your help Sean can reach his goal!
“Life is so short. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was one less thing in the world for all of us to worry about? Maybe, just maybe, the money that we raise through this event will help us get there. I know one thing – it certainly won’t hurt!”
The Fighters have been training for weeks now and we asked Sean how his training is going so far… “Challenging but well. Boxing is not an easy sport to master…both mentally and physically.
I’m so ready for these next 2.5 months. I’ll be sure to make all my supporters proud.”
