Lemay employees don’t lack for ambition or lung capacity!
Gathered last Saturday, June 10, about a dozen of them proudly represented Lemay with their multiple ascents of the stairway at Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, as part of Kilimandjaro à Québec 2017. The gruelling event raises funds for neurosurgery research at a Quebec City hospital, and this year it surpassed its goal of $161,170!
The self-named “Lemay en Santé” team (from our healthcare studio) climbed the stairway’s 487 steps an arduous 61 times: the equivalent of the Tanzanian peak’s 5,892-metre altitude. Even better, with their great energy and enthusiasm, they ranked 23rd out of 72 teams while raising a total amount of $2,554 in donations! Bravo!
Lemay’s 60th anniversary celebrations this year are a reason to recognize perseverance and achievement, which were on full display for this challenge. Thank you to all who generously participated in this great cause!
