EMD Serono, Canada, the Canadian biopharmaceutical business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, announced their 2017 sponsorship of the Canadian Cancer Society's (CCS) Mudmoiselle events across Ontario throughout August and September.

"At EMD Serono, Canada we are committed to supporting our community," said Russ Burrell, Commercial Director, Oncology. "The sponsorship of Mudmoiselle events across the province is a great opportunity for our employees and their families to join Mudmoiselles in raising funds for cancer research and vital cancer support services."

The Canadian Cancer Society runs eight Mudmoiselle events in the province. These obstacle courses feature 5K stretches of the muckiest, filthiest, slimiest mud. Cancer fights dirty, but so do participants! In the last two years, close to 6,000 people have dragged cancer through the mud at these events. In 2016, EMD Serono had one of the largest teams at the Halton event and took top honours by raising over $5,000.

"We are thrilled that EMD Serono has come aboard as the Mudmoiselle event series' presenting sponsor," says Sacha Michna, Relay For Life and Special Events Manager in Ontario. "We are very thankful for this generous sponsorship because it will enable our event participants to make muddy memories all while supporting cancer research and support services for patients and their families."
