Ultramar's contribution to breast cancer research
Ultramar has been a longtime partner of the Breast Cancer Foundation. The commitment of the Company, its employees and customers is reflected in Ultramar’s retail network throughout Eastern Canada.
Every year, in October, the Ultramar service stations network donates 1¢ to the Breast Cancer Foundation for each litre of Supreme gasoline sold and $1 for each Supreme wash sold. Thanks to this annual efforts, over $4.2 million has been raised through its retail sales locations for the Breast Cancer Foundation over a twelve-year period.
The funds raised are used to provide support to women facing the disease as well as to develop and support a new kinesi-oncology program in breast cancer, My Active Health.
The Breast Cancer Foundation’s goal is to fund research into breast cancer, promote breast health through education and awareness, and to offer support to persons affected by breast cancer.
