Over 2,700 runners at the second Pointe-Claire Half-Marathon

Benefitting the Alzheimer Society

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is pleased to announce that a cheque in the amount of $21,000 was donated to the Alzheimer Society after the Desjardins Pointe-Claire Half-Marathon, which took place on June 18.

“With a route through Pointe-Claire Village and along the shores of Lake Saint-Louis, participants were able to be active and have fun while supporting a cause that offers assistance to many people. Once again this year, the event was a huge success thanks to the cooperation of our partners and volunteers. We thank them all for their efforts,” stated Mayor Trudeau.

This year, over 2,700 running enthusiasts, from beginners to more experienced athletes, came together for this half-marathon.

All proceeds from the event were donated to the Alzheimer Society of Montréal to fund various assistance programs for people with Alzheimer’s as well as their informal caregivers, family, and friends.

“Congratulations to the many participants who took up the challenge in this athletic event for the whole family. Everyone is invited to join us next year,” concluded Mayor Trudeau.

The cheque was presented at Edgewater Park in Pointe-Claire in the presence of partners.
