Company has donated $100,000 to local childhood cancer fight since 2008

CAMBRIDGE, Ontario – Nestlé Waters Canada, Canada’s marketshare-leading manufacturer and distributor of healthy beverage choices, today announced that it has donated $10,000 to Work For A Cure, the now 10-year-old community-based volunteer cancer cure fundraising organization.

Since Work For A Cure was founded in 2005 by former Nestlé Waters Canada employees Andy Incitti and the late Kevin Fanjoy, the Company has donated $100,000 in cash and more than 30,000 bottles of water to keep the organization’s volunteers and supporters properly hydrated during the many fundraising activities it organizes each year.

By the end of the next two years, Work For A Cure will have raised $1 million to fight cancer -- $250,000 of which will go towards the construction of a pediatric waiting area at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.

“Nestlé Waters Canada was our first corporate sponsor and has continued to encourage, support and fund our efforts to make a difference in this community in the fight against cancer,” said Mr. Incitti. “We are deeply thankful for the Company’s financial, in-kind and volunteer assistance year-in and year-out.”
