For the second consecutive year the “On saute à votre place !” event, organized by owner pharmacists Judith Savoie, Vincent Mailhot, and Yan Desilets, was held yesterday at École de parachutisme Voltige 2001 in Notre-Dame de Lourdes.
The event brought together 17 brave souls who sponsored and skydived for a sick child in their community. This group included Claude Lavoie, former vice president of development at Familiprix, who, at the respectable age of 72, skydived from 13,500 feet!
Last year the first edition of the event raised $48,000. In two years, the event has donated a total of $110,300 to Opération Enfant Soleil.
We would like to congratulate the outstanding organizers of this event, everyone who raised money and jumped, and all those near and far who helped make the second edition a success.
Great job—see you next year!
