Pomerleau is proud to announce today that the funds raised for On the Tip of the Toes Foundation have had a direct impact. Thanks to the company's fundraising efforts, 13 teenagers are participating in a grand winter expedition at no cost to them. Aged between 14 and 18, the participants come from all over the country and are currently in remission from cancer.
In recognition of the fundraising efforts of the Pomerleau Challenge participants and their network, the Foundation decided to name Pomerleau as the official partner of the expedition.
During the six-day adventure, which began on Saturday, March 3, 2018, these 13 young people will explore Ontario's Algonquin Park by dog sled. The expedition will provide them the opportunity to go outside their comfort zone, and to readily share the difficulties, suffering, and anxiety of dealing with cancer with other participants who are the same age and living similar realities.
Congratulations and thank you to all of you who made this expedition possible either through your fundraising efforts or donations!
