$80,000 raised for the Lighthouse
The 4e edition of the Marche 24h pour Le Phare, held on September 9 and 10 in the borough of Rosemont, raised $80,000 which will be donated to the Lighthouse Children and Families. The funds will enable the organization to provide free essential services to children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.
Formerly known as La Marche Québec-Montréal, the event has revisited its format to make it even more accessible. This event, initiated by Michael Lavoie, brought together more than 100 walkers and 700 donors of all ages. A party was held at Parc Jean-Duceppe to close the event.
