Cardio-thon: Canam Employees Get Moving for the Cause

February 26, 2021

On February 20, 27 employees of Canam Group in Beauce (St. Georges and St. Gédéon) participated in a Cardio-thon to benefit the Fondation du cœur Beauce-Etchemin (Beauce-Etchemin Heart Foundation). Together, they raised $3,500 by pledging to accumulate a total of 12 hours of cardio on the day of the event. Of course, this year, the activities were done remotely and many took advantage of the opportunity to promote outdoor sports: running, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, etc.

“I would like to thank the members of the Canam Group team for their participation in the 2021 Cardio-thon,” says Patricia Dumas, Detail Checker, who coordinated the initiative. “It was a pleasure to bring these beating hearts together for a good cause. Thank you also to all our donors for their generosity and encouragement.”

A total of $117,200 was raised during the Cardio-thon, far surpassing the Foundation’s goal of $70,000.
