The BMP Foundation is pleased to announce that the second edition of the BMP MOVE BOUGE was a success! We would like to thank Érick Grandmont, owner of the Centre d’entrainement Énergie Sud, who originated this sporting and family event. By offering a diversified program spread over the weekend, this fundraising event raised $50,000 for the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Foundation. The money will be used for the redevelopment of the Orthopedic Clinic and to improve home care at the CLSC Pommeraie.
Dr. Pincott has once again organized for the Foundation a special team for the Vélothon: Dr. Pincott’s Friends. For the 15th edition of the event, they alone raised $29,000 of the total amount. In all, more than 400 people came out to « move » over the weekend and contributed to this high-energy event. The BMP Foundation would like to thank all the volunteers present on site, sponsors, participants and several members of the hospital who were involved. Among these, Dr. Éric Benjamin, emergency physician, helped organize the X-FIT competition and Dr. Étienne Leclerc, head of the orthopedic department, contributed to the success of the Spin-o-thon.
Fun for everyone
Offering activities for young and old, there was something for everyone this weekend. Participants had the choice between participating in the impressive crosstraining competition, the traditional Bike-a-thon, available in 70km or 14km family version, or the intense Spin-o-thon. New this year, a parent-child obstacle course was organized for everyone’s enjoyment.
A history of commitment
The Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Foundation is above all a story of committed citizens who are concerned about the health of their community. Since its creation in 1993, the Foundation has raised and invested more than $27 million in major reorganization projects to provide better services and access to health care.
