WINNIPEG, Man. – Maxim Truck and Trailer raised $23,000 for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation’s Challenge for Life campaign during a May 26 barbecue at the company’s Winnipeg, Man. location, which saw roughly 600 people visit the charity event.
“I’m proud of the staff, customers, suppliers and friends who continually support and participate in our annual charity events like our barbecue,” said Doug Harvey, president of Maxim and current chariman for the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. “I can tell you first hand that the funds raised are being put to good use.”
Harvey has battled cancer for the past year and shared his story during a keynote address at CancerCare Manitoba’s Gold Plated Evening Fundraiser this past April.
Maxim has 17 locations in 11 cities and employs over 600 people, selling, renting, leasing and offering after-sales service of new and used heavy-duty trucks and trailers.
