The last edition of the Sherbrooke Relay for Life in which Gosselin Electric Motors' team participated took place last Friday night.
For the second year in a row, a team was formed at Gosselin Electric Motors to participate in the Relay for Life of Sherbrooke, in order to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. Composed of staff members and spouses, our team stood out on several levels this year!
First, thanks to the generosity of our colleagues, business partners, friends and family, we managed to surpass last year's total by raising 7 604 $. We are very proud of this result and want to thank all of those who encouraged us for this event. After 2 years, we have raised over 14 000 $ for the cause.
Our team also stood out differently: we were the team that walked the furthest distance during the night. Despite the weather, surprisingly cold for early June (3°C!), forcing us to wear our winter coats and hats and despite the fatigue that was becoming more and more present, we walked 318.6 KM, more than twice the distance between Sherbrooke and Montreal
What is the relay for life ?
The Relay For Life is a 12-hour, overnight relay walk that celebrates life and gives hope to those affected by cancer in our community. Since this is a relay, there must be, at all times, a walker of our team on the track.
