Spokesperson for the event

There are no words to describe our feelings and gratitude. Thanks to your participation in the Generations Challenge, we raised more than $700,000 for the patients and families of our hospital. What an accomplishment!

THANK YOU 700,000 times!

You’re one of the several thousand participants and donors who rallied around our healthcare system and played a role in the success of this unique show of solidarity for our hospitals.

It was incredible to see all of you surpass your limits, from Montréal to Québec City, through the Laurentides, to Gaspésie, and beyond!

Thanks to you, patients and their families have access to quality healthcare that is safe and at the cutting edge of technology. BRAVO!

Put simply, but very sincerely—THANK YOU! See you again next year for an even more inspiring and rallying edition, and above all, an even greater impact for our patients and their families!

I’m pushing my limits for

my Hospital!

This summer, we’ll surpass ourselves from Montréal to Québec City, through the Laurentides, to Gaspésie, and beyond! A huge wave of solidarity for our hospitals will sweep across Québec!

Take up a challenge that reflects who you are, alone or in a team. Be creative. The sky’s the limit!

You have until September 23 to complete your challenge and raise funds.

What challenge will you be taking up?

For which Foundation do you want to take up the challenge?


THE 2022 EDITION IN PICTURE

An edition that got hundreds of people moving in support of 17 hospital foundations! And the resounding results convinced many other foundations across Québec to join the movement!

Will you take up the challenge with us this year?

An inclusive challenge, accessible to everyone

You don’t need to run a marathon to participate in the Challenge! Everyone can push their limits and take on all kinds of challenges—while having fun! Collecting donations on your own is great, but doing it with friends, colleagues, children, grandparents, can be way more motivating!

“Every idea is a good idea! It can be as simple as committing to reading a book a week, doing yoga every morning, organizing a waste collection drive… Every goal will make a difference!”

- Josée Lavigueur, spokesperson for the event

Why participate?

Right now, we’re facing unprecedented limitations in the health system. Fewer personnel, fewer beds, less operating time. The waiting lists are getting longer everywhere. For patients waiting for surgery, for worried families, for our exhausted health workers, YOUR generosity makes all the difference.

Through your actions, you’re offering quality, safe and cutting-edge healthcare to patients and their families in your hospitals! From infancy to end-of-life, adolescence to adulthood. You’re there for them, from beginning to end, in times of joy and moments of pain, for minor injuries and life-changing events.

INSPIRING CHALLENGES

Michel Dubuc

For the CHUS Foundation
“On November 11, 2022, I started wearing a different hat at the office. I was no longer a physician there. I’d become a patient. I was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. What touched me the most was randomly crossing paths with a mother and her son in the corridors of this adult floor. His life was just starting; I already had 3/4 of a century under my belt.”

Marc-André Hinse

For the Fondation Hôpital Charles-LeMoyne
“I decided to join the Challenge to highlight the exceptional care my mother is presently receiving at Hôpital Charles Lemoyne. Our family has faced a number of serious health challenges recently and the Hospital has always been there to help us. Between now and September 15, I’ll run the streets of Brossard, covering a distance of more than 200 km.”

The Great Walk

For the Montréal Hôpital Sacré-Coeur Foundation
“Our challenge is to walk 5 km with our pooches, from Bois-Francs (in Ville Saint-Laurent) to Sacré-Coeur, on September 17. A great way to promote physical exercise while helping our Hospital pursue its projects.”

Sandra Lévesque

For the Fondation du Centre hospitalier de Granby
“I’m taking up the challenge of walking for my health during the entire Challenge period and beyond. I plan to walk 5 days out of 7. In addition to being good for my health, it will be good for my right hip, which has been acting up for some time. My goal is to be able to participate in the Marche des Pichous with my daughter in March 2024 when she returns to Québec, and at her pace. My local hospital is important for my family and me!”

Mini-golf tournament

For the CHUS Foundation
“On Tuesday, August 29, at 6:30 p.m., come have fun with family or friends, while supporting a cause that affects all of us—health! A mini-golf tournament to the theme of “80s Glow in the Dark”: come dressed in your most colourful getup!”

CHUM’s Addiction Medicine Department

For the CHUM Foundation
“We work tirelessly and, for a few days, we’ll also walk and run a relay to cover more than 100 km as a team. By supporting us, you’re contributing to supporting our hospital, our department and our patients. Ultimately, this is for you. Addiction issues affect everyone: your friends, your family, your colleagues. There’s so much to do.”
