NEW: THIS YEAR, SUPPORT A CAUSE THAT IS CLOSE TO YOUR HEART
In order to motivate our runners to raise funds, we have associated with three causes that have a real impact. You will therefore have the possibility to choose an organism that is close to your values:
- The Montreal Island Alzheimer Society to help our elderly;
- The Mission 1000 tonnes to clean our water courses and oceans;
- The SPCA de Montreal Area to protect animals.
THE MONTREAL ISLAND ALZHEIMER SOCIETY
The mission of the Montreal Island Alzheimer Society is to alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer’s disease and appartant illnesses by offering interventions, care, and support services that have a long-term positive impact.
The Montreal’s Island Alzheimer Society wishes to build an engaged community to face the challenges associated with actual and future cognitive disorders.
The number of people with cognitive diseases will increase by 66% in the next 15 years and we must be able to meet the growing demand for quality services. Your donations will therefore help achieve this goal.
Since 2013, the Lachine and Pointe-Claire Half-Marathons have given more than $187 000 to the organism. With your help, we can go even further.START A FUNDRAISING WITH THE MONTREAL ISLAND ALZHEIMER SOCIETY
MISSION 1000 TONNES
Mission 1000 Tonnes is a Quebec organization that aims at removing 1000 tonnes of waste from the waterbodies of Quebec and the planet in order to improve their health. The cause also wishes to raise awareness among citizens and businesses about the protections and conservation of lakes, rivers and oceans.
Chore cleanings are frequently launched in Quebec and abroad to remove waste and plastic. To date, 94.3 tonnes have already been collected and over 450 cleanings have been completed, of which approximately 400 are in the province.
Your donations will contribute to help the organization increase their operation level in order to reach their objective. Your collects will also allow the organization to expand its mission worldwide and to deploy cleanings all around the globe, starting with Nicaragua. They will, of course, continue to take care of the precious Saint-Laurent River and other watercourses of Québec.START A FUNDRAISING WITH MISSION 1000 TONNES
