“The students are the real winners in this event,” said Brinck.  “We are grateful for their sticking with us for another event that required some changes due to the pandemic. We are  blown away  by the many students who joined us for some spirited fun, all in the name of supporting life-saving research and supporting children battling cancer.”  

Traditionally, Night for the Fight is a 12-hour overnight event where students learn about childhood cancer and take part in games and entertainment throughout the celebration.  With pandemic protocols in effect last year, the event evolved into a virtual scavenger hunt with 250 challenges. Kerry Byrne, President, TQL expressed pride on behalf of Total Quality Logistics’ role in supporting the CFK mission

 “We are honored to support this incredible event,” said Byrne. “We are proud to  help CancerFree KIDS in their mission to find cures and gentler treatments for childhood cancers.”
