AURORA and MISSISSAUGA, CANADA, October 4, 2018 -- Magna International Inc. and BASF made a joint donation of $20,000 to Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer for the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

Rallying together to support the event, both companies teamed up for a friendly road hockey tournament and fundraiser that featured a variety of celebrity appearances. Mark Napier, former Stanley Cup winner with the Montreal Canadiens and the Edmonton Oilers, joined the Magna/BASF team as an honorary player. The team was among the top 35 donors to the cause.

“Teamwork, dedication and achieving goals; these are fundamental parts of hockey and are also reflected in our commitment to supporting the communities where we live and work,” said Marc Neeb, Chief HR Officer at Magna. “We’re especially thrilled to be able to work with our colleagues at BASF for a third consecutive year to help fight cancer across Canada.”

“BASF and Magna share a common goal when it comes to taking action in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation’s vision to conquer the disease in our lifetime,” said Robert Hutchings, Key Account Manager, BASF. “By working together to support charitable giving and volunteerism activities, our combined efforts have a greater impact on the communities where we live and work.”
