Nordia Rouyn-Noranda has fun in the bubbles for a great cause!

On July 15, the Nordia Rouyn-Noranda team participated for the first time to the Big Bubble Tour, the foamiest 5K fun run in town! Far from being a competitive race, the Big Bubble Tour is rather a fun experience that allows the participants to blast through 5 distinct foam stations. Funds raised during the day were donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rouyn-Noranda!

Even though the team did not win the duck race, they had a lot of fun and is already preparing for next year's challenge!

Nordia Rouyn-Noranda collects $8,292 for La Ressource

Again this year, employees from our Rouyn-Noranda centre played a big role in supporting the 20th annual telethon of La Ressource pour personnes handicapées de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue/Nord-du-Québec. This year, a record number of 46 employees, volunteers and guests solicited donations between 12 pm and 6:30 pm. In total, $8,292 was collected. Prizes, snacks, donuts and coffee and a pizza dinner were offered to support our volunteer team throughout the day. A big congratulation to our three champion collectors of the day:

  • Leila Aloui: $1,150
  • Sylvie Pharand: $950
  • Bachir Lanez: $550

All in all, La Ressource raised over $503,158 to support its work. Many celebrities participated in the event and some even dropped by to encourage the Nordia volunteers.

Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this event a success!
