Opportunities Abound

Did you know that all services offered by Au Diapason are free and are available to everyone in Brome-Missisquoi and Haute-Yamaska?

On Sunday, May 4 people of all ages can walk or run one of three wooded trails in Bromont as a group or individually for the 5th Annual La Marche fundraiser for Au Diapason. La Marche is the main source of funding for all its services, and 100% of proceeds go to La Maison Au Diapason, in order to maintain care and services for patients and families.

The goal for this year is to raise $300,000. Thirty teams have already registered but there is still time to enter. Registration is $2,000.00 per team and $200.00 individually. Teams have held bake sales and other events as well as soliciting friends and neighbours. The walks begin at the Bromont arena and end with lunch, a short presentation and surprises.

For more information check the website www.audiapason.org  or call 450-534-4002 ext.  228.
