Nygard Gave 22 Million To Cancer Organisations

NYGARD for Life is his charitable platform encompassing a number of initiatives including NYGARD for Life fashion shows featuring cancer survivors, and an annual endowment to CancerCare. They’ve sponsored a symphony orchestra to play for breast cancer patients while they receive treatment. Other initiatives have included NYGÅRD International Molecular Biology Breast Cancer Research Unit and Breast Cancer Tumor Bank, and a Mobile Mammography Unit.

Nygard’s organisation has sponsored and participated in a number of other cancer awareness initiatives that raised money for cancer research like ‘Climb for The Cure’ where participants summited Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, which is the highest mountain in Africa; and like ‘Run for the Cure’ for which he had reached the milestone of having given 1 million t-shirts by 2008.

Twenty-two million dollars is a whole lot of money for one individual to give to a cause. It appears that Nygard’s generosity knows no bounds as he has continuously demonstrated his commitment to addressing this challenge.
