Third an­nual pal­lia­tive home walk damp but suc­cess­ful

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

More than 765 wal­kers and 163 vo­lun­teers par­ti­ci­pa­ted in the 3rd an­nual Bou­ras­sa Boyer Walk for the Vau­dreuil-Sou­langes Pal­lia­tive Care Re­si­dence Foun­da­tion on Sun­day. The May 4 walk hel­ped the Hud­son-ba­sed home raise $158,000. Five si­mul­ta­neous walks ki­cked off at 10 a.m. in towns in­clu­ding Hud­son, Vau­dreuil-Do­rion, Notre-Dame- de-l’Île-Per­rot, Rigaud, and Co­teau-du-Lac. And though rain fell stea­di­ly throu­ghout the day, it let up du­ring most of the walk time. Syl­vie Cre­vier, VSPCR Board of Di­rec­tors co-pre­sident, cre­di­ted the hel­ping hand with the wea­ther to the more than “500 an­gels who are loo­king down on us” who have pas­sed away at the home since it ope­ned its doors in Sep­tem­ber, 2010.
