CSL’s Dragon Boat Challenge Raises Funds to Help Sick Children

Friday, August 23, 2019

CSL employees in Montreal once again took out their paddles for CSL’s fourth annual Paddle for a Purpose Dragon Boat Challenge in support of the St-Justine Children’s Hospital Foundation.

In a nail-biting photo-finish race, Team Purple Reign overtook the Blue Marine Warriors to claim victory and bragging rights for the year. The Krushing Kermits crushed it in third place, followed by Hawaiian-themed Usain Boat and the ever determined Team Red Raft.

A series of fundraising events including lunchtime bingo, snack and plant sales, a potluck lunch and a silent auction will continue through to the end of September to raise funds for the St-Justine Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the health outcomes of children and mothers-to-be. 

“The success of CSL’s Paddle for a Purpose event is the result of a genuine team effort by all employees,” said Louis Martel. “Thanks to everyone who paddled, cheered and took photos, and to all who continue to contribute to the fundraising effort with their time, ideas and generosity.”
