AVATIL’s main fundraising activity is an annual walkathon. The theme of this year’s walkathon, as indicated on our walkathon t-shirts, was ‘lighting the way towards independent living’.
The 2015 walkathon was held on June 13. Over 80 clients, family members, volunteers and staff members participated in the walk which began at AVATIL on 40th Avenue in Lachine and continued along the waterfront up to the chalet du parc LaSalle on 6th Avenue where participants were invited to a lunch, as well as dance music and a performance by our own AVATIL choir.
The event raised almost $5 000 for AVATIL. The amount raised from client sponsors is managed by the AVATIL Client Fundraising Committee, that ensures that these funds help subsidize client activities.
Thank you to all the donors, t-shirt sponsors and to everyone who volunteered at our walkathon for your support of AVATIL!
