On September 7th, 2019 our team will be taking part in the 14th Annual Cedars CanSupport Dragon Boat Race & Festival to help raise awareness and much needed funds for CanSupport, who provide free, supportive care to cancer patients and their families at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC) Cedars Cancer Centre.
The MicroAge Rowers team is an initiative by our company’s Social Committee. Throughout the year, we raise funds for multiple causes. We have decided to select the Cedars CanSupport Dragon Boat race as our main charity fundraising event for a second year. Last year was such a great experience, a fun day for our friends and family. On top of all, for our first participation, we have reached 75% of our fund-raising goal. This year, we will strive to reach 100% and more. Our team is composed of MicroAge employees, family members and friends who each wish to make a difference and support a great cause that has been helping cancer patients for decades! We may be a bunch of IT geeks but put us in a boat and watch out!
Cedars CanSupport is a program at the MUHC, Cedars Cancer Centre. In collaboration with the healthcare team, Cedars CanSupport provides complementary support complimenting conventional treatment, improving the quality of life of cancer patients and their families. CanSupport is comprised of professional staff and trained volunteers all with the shared goal of providing emotional support, education services, complementary therapies and practical resources to cancer patients and their support networks.
We hope you will help to support us and cheer us on at the beautiful Promenade Pére Marquette in Lachine on Saturday, September 7th.
Thank you in advance for your kind consideration and generosity.
