Oct. 1, 2015, Delta, B.C. – Windset Farms is once again be partnering with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Over the last three years, Windset has helped donate over $100,000 to the CBCF and hopes to continue its fundraising efforts.

Windset Farms will again participate in the CIBC Run for the Cure, held on Sunday, Oct. 4. They will also be donating over 2,500 kg of Concerto® Grape Tomatoes and Fresco® Mini Cucumbers for participants and supporters at every Run for the Cure site across British Columbia. 

“We want to do what we can to give back to our community,” says COO John Newell. “As a produce company, we support proper nutrition and healthy lifestyles that can help reduce the risk of cancer and other diseases.”

To increase donations and awareness, 10 per cent of net proceeds from select Concerto Grape Tomatoes packages will be donated to the CBCF for the entire month of October. 


On Oct. 4, thousands of men and women across Canada will come together for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. This event is dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research, education and awareness programs.

The Foundation itself was founded by a group of women who had a vision to bring a voice to those affected by breast cancer.

Today, it has stayed true to that vision and has continued to be at the forefront of a movement to raise awareness and mobilize action on breast cancer.
