July 6, 2021 by Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade
TORONTO, ON, JULY 6, 2021/insPRESS/ –WICC (Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade) is 25 years old this year! What started as an idea to unite a group of local insurance employees to help fight cancer, has grown into an association of provincial chapters that has raised $18 million and connected an industry from coast to coast.
WICC is proud of what our industry has accomplished since 1996. And we’re excited about WICC’s future continuing to help fund cancer research, support and education and improve the lives of those affected by cancer. Learn More.
