QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 25, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The fourth Brunet-Children's Wish Provincial Tour, presented in cooperation with Apotex, advancing generics, will kick off Monday, March 10. From March 10 to May 9, a squad of ambassadors will invite people to sign up for the MaSanté program free of charge in the 154 Brunet pharmacies throughout the province. For each signup, $1 will be donated to the Children's Wish Foundation. Loyal Brunet customers who sign up for MaSanté during this period will help little Milane realize her wish of going back for another fun-filled visit to the magical world of Walt Disney!
Luc Martinovitch, Vice-President and General Manager, McMahon Distributeur pharmaceutique, stated with emotion, "Given the success of our last three tours, we have decided to get involved with the foundation once again, to bring happiness to the children it helps. This year, we have chosen to sponsor the wish of 9-year-old Milane, who has lymphatic cancer. Her dream of returning to the Walt Disney theme park has helped her through difficult times in her treatment. On behalf of all the pharmacists in the Brunet family, I'd like to applaud her exceptional courage. I hope she enjoys this very well-deserved trip."
The MaSanté program allows customers to consult their pharmacy record online at www.brunet.ca as well as refill their prescriptions, set up medication reminders, and manage the records of their family members.
