The Concierges of Les Clefs d’Or Canada have always found various ways to help and support their local communities. In 2005, a group of 18 of them in the BC Region, led by Team Captain Sheron Empey, from the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver, raised $3951 for the Terry Fox Foundation dedicated to cancer research.
It was the beginning of a long, ongoing story of friendship and strong collaboration between all regions of Les Clefs d’Or Canada and the Terry Fox Foundation, as the Terry Fox Run became our 2nd National Charity, along with Dreams Take Flight.
As you can see on the table below, the Les Clefs d’Or Canada’s participation in the Terry Fox Run has constantly increased over the years, where we reached the $20000 mark on a few occasions and kept ourselves close to it on many others, and it is very strong today as we have collected, across the country, in the last 11 years, a whopping total of $164941.!!
All Regions of Les Clefs d’Or Canada will be running and walking, 5 or 10 Km, in September 2016 at the Terry Fox Run, to raise more money for cancer research. Please continue to give generously!
