Fondation du CHUM begins Guy Lafleur fundraiser
The Montreal-based Fondation du CHUM has begun a fundraising campaign in support of cancer research featuring hockey player Guy Lafleur. Called “Face Off Against Cancer With Guy Lafleur,” the initiative encourages consumers to donate a weekly amount to the the organization’s Guy Lafleur Fund for 10 weeks. By doing so, donors will have the opportunity to participate in weekly live Facebook chats with various hockey personalities including Raymond Bourque and Martin Brodeur. Donors can sign-up online at <http://www.fondationduchum.com>.
“We are very grateful to be able to count on the involvement and generosity of Guy Lafleur to support The Fondation du CHUM’s innovative initiatives,” said Julie Chaurette, President and CEO of the foundation. “There’s no doubt that together we're stronger, and that donor support is a driving force behind cancer research with the experts at the CHUM Research Centre, a world leader in the field.”
