300… for LIFE: great success!
The Cité de la Santé Foundation is proud to announce that the 2020 edition of the 300 km Bike Challenge for LIFE, renamed the 300 … for LIFE Challenge, has been a great success. The net amount of $ 95,000 was raised for the Laval Cancer Program.
Rather than going back and forth between Laval and Trois-Rivières, the participants carried out a personal or team challenge during the summer of 2020. Everyone was invited to take up their challenge and ask the members of their entourage to contribute. to the cause (no minimum fundraising required).
“We are really impressed by the resilience and creativity of our 75 participants. Some biked, swam or ran. A group of enthusiasts even did the 325 km of cycling in one day – between Laval and Trois-Rivières! Beyond the physical effort, the participants also surpassed themselves in fundraising, despite the pandemic. Congratulations to all! ” – André Malacket, General Manager.
We would like to warmly thank all the donors, the participants and our loyal partners: Guimond Construction, official presenter of the Challenge for 3 years, the Association of general practitioners of Laval (AMOL), Universal Physiotherapy and Bicycles Quilicot. We would also like to salute the commitment of our ambassador, Jean-Michel Anctil, who took up the challenge of his “triathlon” and raised more than $ 1000 for the cause.
THANKS and see you next year!
