Le Cross-Country (Running Race) October 18th, 2009.
By:  Skinouk   (2009/09/16)


Club Skinouk, cross-country ski club in Gatineau since 1989, invites you to its Cross-country at parc du lac Beauchamp on 18 October 2009. Race entries contribute to the Suzanne-Carrière Fund, part of the CSSS Fondation of Gatineau.

Come honor the memory of Suzanne Carrière who was director general of the Fondation before she passed away from breast cancer. Mrs Carrière also contributed significantly to the development of running, cross country skiing and cycling in Outaouais.

Cancer took her away in June 2009 but Suzanne Carrière had taken a personnel commitment that will outlast her time with us. She created a fund for breast cancer research - le Fonds de dotation Suzanne-Carrière pour 'la lutte contre le cancer du sein'. It is the first Dotation Fund under the umbrella of la Fondation du CSSS de Gatineau.

Revenues from Fund investments will become a stable source of financing for the Fondation and its fight againt cancer.
