Simon Lafrance, Managing Partner at STRATEGEUM, was riding a bicycle this weekend for the Juritour, a cycling tour imagined and managed by Claude Provencher, Senior Advisor and Executive Coach at the firm, in order to raise funds to fight cystic fibrosis, a disease affecting his daughter Cloe. It is for her that STRATEGEUM became partner in the event, realizing her dream to meet Youppi by inviting him to come encourage the participants.
Oh, yes, the Juritour also raised nearly 120 000 $ ! (French only.)
This weekend Montreal was host to the 5th Replenishment Conference of the Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria. On this occasion many Heads of States, including from Africa, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon as well as personalities from the global business community such as Melinda and Bill Gates and many artists were mobilized to raise funding. It is with pleasure that STRATEGEUM took part in the event at the invitation of the Global Fund’s team in addition to coordinating with them, ministerial offices, partners and clients to organize complement activities to the main program.
