I don’t usually solicit for things, but this is a great cause.
I am participating in a 25 hour relay at my gym (EnergieCardio Plateau Mont-Royal) to raise funds for Operation Enfant Soleil & Fonds Josée Lavigueur. Here is a brief note on their objectives:
Since 1999, the great Énergie Cardio team has been committed to supporting Opération Enfant Soleil, a non-profit organization that raises funds to foster the development of quality paediatric care for all children in Quebec. Our mission is to promote health and the health of children is particularly close to our hearts.
Wishing to increase our support for this cause and to target disease prevention in particular, in 2006 Énergie Cardio, in cooperation with Opération Enfant Soleil, established the Josée Lavigueur Fund, whose mission is to prevent illnesses in children through physical activity. From now on, all funds raised by Énergie Cardio and donated to Opération Enfant Soleil will be used to achieve this mission.
In nine years, thanks to the participation of our 1,600 employees and the generosity of our 140,000 members, Énergie Cardio has donated over $700,000 to Opération Enfant Soleil.
I have a donation page if anyone wishes to contribute to my participation, and more importantly, a great cause.
