Fire­fighter rais­ing money for Aube Lu­miere

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Sherbrooke

The City of Sherbrooke as well as its Fire Depart­ment salute the de­ter­mi­na­tion of one of their own fire­fight­ers: Rémy Beaulieu. He is tak­ing part in the Mount McKin­ley climb, this spring, with five other peo­ple in or­der to raise money for the Mai­son Aube Lu­miere.

The climb will take courage on the part of Mr. Beaulieu, not only be­cause of the moun­tain’s height, its ex­treme cli­mate and its ge­o­graph­i­cal lo­ca­tion, but also be­cause this fa­ther of three young chil­dren lost his wife, Marie-Claude Re­naud, to can­cer last Septem­ber at the age of 34. She died at the Mai­son Aube Lu­miere.

“I am well sit­u­ated to un­der­stand the im­por­tance of the sup­port ser­vices of­fered by the Mai­son Aube Lu­miere in our re­gion and the re­mark­able work done there to re­lieve the suf­fer­ing of those who are sick and their loved ones,” com­mented Mr. Beaulieu.

“We are all be­hind him. His courage is a great source of in­spi­ra­tion for his col­leagues. He has been able to en­gage sev­eral other fire-fight­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions in this project and we are very proud of him,” com­mented the di­rec­tor of the Sherbrooke fire depart­ment, Gae­tan Drouin.

Peo­ple who would like to con­trib­ute to this fundraiser by sup­port­ing the ex­pe­di­tion are in­vited to ei­ther buy the spe­cial coupons “Un pas dans la neige” at the fol­low­ing sport­ing stores: At­mos­phere, Econo Sport Sherbrooke, Sport Welling­ton, Sports Ex­pert and Hockey Ex­pert, or by send­ing a do­na­tion di­rectly to Mai­son Aube Lu­miere and spec­i­fy­ing “Defi courage McKin­ley”.
