ALDO FIGHT AIDS
From its inception in 1972, the ALDO Group has been founded on the principles of love, integrity and respect. Beyond simply words, these are values that are instilled in everything we do. The ALDO Group has been involved in the fight against AIDS since the mid-80s when very few people and even fewer companies were willing to publicly support those affected by the disease. Since then, the ALDO brand has actively worked to raise awareness and funds for the cause, through various product and marketing campaigns as well as annual charitable donations through ALDO FIGHTS AIDS.

The Dakar Rally is the most difficult automobile sporting event in the world, with over 450 cars, motorcycles, ATVs, trucks and buggies competing for over 9000 km in 2014.

CYSTIC FIBROSIS CANADA
Cystic Fibrosis Canada is a national charitable not-for-profit corporation established in 1960, and is one of the world’s top three charitable organizations committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF). As an internationally recognized leader in funding innovation and clinical care, we invest more in life-saving CF research and care than any other non-governmental agency in Canada.
Since establishment, Cystic Fibrosis Canada has invested more than $150 million in leading research, innovation and care. As a result, Canadians with cystic fibrosis have one of the highest median survival rates in the world.
We rely on the generous support of our volunteers, donors, and partners in our shared mission to improve the lives of Canadians living with cystic fibrosis, and ultimately to find a cure for this devastating disease.
QUEBEC BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION
The Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation is a registered charitable organization established in 1994 on the initiative of Pam McLernon. Its original name was the Montreal Breast Cancer Foundation. Initially, the Foundation’s objectives were to provide assistance to women with breast cancer and to support medical research on the disease. Our mission still encompasses those original goals, but has gradually expanded to include activities focused on breast health awareness and education.
Since its inception, the Foundation, which became the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation in 2003, has experienced remarkable growth, thanks to generous donations from its partners and the public. Today, we are proud to fund major research projects in Quebec, while continuing to encourage Quebecers to adopt healthy lifestyles, and to support thousands of breast cancer sufferers in their struggle with the disease.
Since 1994, we have invested more than $23 million in research, education and awareness, and support programs. Thanks to the sustained generosity of people like you, the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation remains hopeful that it will accomplish even more, so that fewer and fewer people will die from this disease.
