Staged on & along the waterfront of Montreal’s scenic Promenade Père-Marquette in Lachine, the FL Fuller Landau Cedars Dragons CanSupport ‘Rain or Shine’ Dragon Boat Race & Festival is a full day of fun in support of the Cedars Cancer Foundation.
This year marks the 10 Year Anniversary as Title Sponsor of the event for FL Fuller Landau & we are extremely happy to be supporting the Cedars Cancer Foundation program, which offers free-of-charge psychosocial, practical, educational, emotional and humanitarian assistance to cancer patients & families at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC).
“Alexia and I began as spokespeople for the Cedars CanSupport Dragon Boat Race & Festival, we have each waged our own battles with this awful disease. Knowing first-hand the devastating effects of cancer, and the necessity of the services Cedars CanSupport provides, we are honoured to continue to stand behind such an amazing event.” – Anthony Calvillo, Grey Cup Quarterback Champion, Montreal Alouettes
Boat captain, Simon Desmeules, is busy preparing our 2 boats. Simon has been involved in the event every year since his debut at FL Fuller Landau 7 years ago. Audit Manager & outdoor enthusiast, Simon constantly wants to stretch his limits and take on new team challenges.
“This Dragon Boat Race & Festival has been so close to my heart. Come out for a day of paddling and fun. Join me in our fundraising efforts and together we can make a huge difference for all those patients battling cancer today!!” -Alexandre Despatie, Canadian Olympic Diving Medalist
Boat captain, ambassador of positive thinking and active mentor for various professionals, Jaimie Auger encourages all to never stop exploring.
Constantly discovering new trends, habits, practices to keep up with her need to reinvent herself and the vibe around her. Believes in message consistency yet values and embraces different approaches. She applies this at work, home and in the race! You are what you… think!
“This year we are celebrating our 10th anniversary as Title Sponsor of the Cedars CanSupport ‘Rain or Shine’ Dragon Boat Race & Festival and we are looking forward to marking this important milestone. We are honoured to be part of this event again this year, and for years to come.
The firm could easily sponsor something where we write a cheque and then walk away, which would involve minimal participation and no further efforts from our Team. This event was chosen as an activity that takes place throughout the entire year. It gets different departments and people in the firm working together to interact and fundraise for a GREAT cause that affects so many people…and it’s the least we can do for our community. It is the responsibility of everyone to give back to their community – without giving back: our people don’t grow, our community lacks a sense of commitment and participation beyond themselves, and those affected by cancer miss out on guidance, treatment and much needed support.”
– Michael Newton, Managing Partner, FL Fuller Landau
