$15,000 collected thanks to HAMFIT

There was no way the temporary closure of their sports centre was going to stop the HAMFIT community to getting involved on behalf of children with cancer! On the contrary, during these trying times, it was that much more important for Jonathan Hamel and his acolytes not to sit on the sidelines, but rather to jump in and lend their support.

The company, which presents some 10 sporting challenges annually in support of the Fondation Charles-Bruneau, has decided to maintain and adapt its fundraising activities to the current situation. On May 2, 2020, it thus held its first online Défi HAMFIT, live on its Facebook page.

For 12 hours, the centre’s fitness trainers took turns offering video training sessions in exchange for donations to the Fondation. There was considerable participation from their community, whose members remitted the generous sum of $15,000 to the Fondation, which was no less than three times their initial objective.

Energized by this phenomenal success, the HAMFIT team is now eager to forge ahead with its next event, the Course HAMFIT X Lululemon, which will be held Sunday, May 17, 2020, in compliance with physical distancing guidelines.
