Even after all these years and amid pandemic-related restrictions, people across the province stepped up once again to show their support for the children and families of Sainte-Justine.

Tonight, the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation and main partners Rythme and METRO are thrilled to celebrate the record-breaking results of the 13th annual Sainte-Justine Tree of Lights campaign.

 

The CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation, along with its main campaign partners, Rythme and Metro, and students from private schools across Quebec, are pleased to kick off the 13th annual Sainte-Justine Tree of Lights campaign.

 

Launched in April, this pan-Canadian undertaking aims to explore potential therapeutic options using convalescent plasma in the fight against COVID-19. Under the leadership of such renowned experts such as CHU Sainte-Justine clinician-researcher Dr. Philippe Bégin, also Associate Professor at the Université de Montréal Department of Medicine, the Canadian scientific and medical community have rallied together in support of this effort. Joining them are the front-line donors of the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation, including Power Corporation of Canada and Intact Financial Corporation, who have agreed to sign on as major donors for this initiative.

 

The CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation is looking for 50,000 front-line donors, not only to provide the vital support required by the teams who are currently investing a phenomenal amount of energy in response to the crisis while continuing to see to priority needs, but also to back essential research efforts.

 

As activities across the province are being put on hold, and individuals and leaders alike are intensifying their preventive efforts, the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation would like to take a moment to appeal to Quebecers’ sense of compassion and generosity. “Today, more than ever, philanthropy and donors play a crucial role in society,” stressed President and CEO Maud Cohen.

 

Considering the current situation surrounding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and on the wise advice of the CHU Sainte-Justine experts and public health authorities, the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation informs that it is postponing all of its spring events to a later date. The Foundation is taking all necessary preventive measures to limit the risk of spreading the virus. New dates will be communicated as soon as possible.

 

Today marks the last day of the 14th annual Mois des Câlins campaign at Sainte-Justine, an initiative that is made possible by its steadfast partners at Rythme, Jean Coutu and Clarins. Once again this year, people from across the province were very generous in showing their support for the children and families in the Sainte-Justine community. [Press release in French only]
