We are thrilled to announce Gareth Wheeler as the recipient of the 2020 DCMF Recognition Award for excellence in melanoma prevention, awareness and support.

Gareth is a long-time, well-respected soccer broadcaster and journalist, having covered Toronto FC since the club’s first season in 2007. He has covered every World Cup and EURO competition since 2008, and has hosted various English Premier League, Major League Soccer and international competition in-match coverage. Gareth is also the Play-by-Play voice of the Raptors 905, the NBA G-League affiliate of the 2019 NBA Champion Toronto Raptors.

Gareth’s successful broadcasting career has coincided with a long-standing battle with melanoma. After multiple surgeries and spread of the disease to his lymphatic system, Gareth is waging a successful fight against melanoma.

A passionate champion of melanoma prevention and early detection, Gareth has raised significant awareness among sports fans and Canadians alike. By actively sharing his personal journey with melanoma as a motivational speaker and wellness advocate, Gareth has empowered Canadians to reduce their risk of melanoma.

We thank Gareth for his important contributions to the melanoma cause and congratulate him on this well deserved award.
