QUEBEC CITY, Nov. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - The SSQ Quebec City Marathon was instrumental in raising $50,155 this year for the SOCODEVI Foundation. The funds raised will go toward the purchase of an ambulance for the Sikasso regional health mutual in Mali.
SSQ Financial Group would like to sincerely thank all of those who gave so generously this year. Without them such a successful fund-raising campaign would not have been possible. The SSQ Quebec City Marathon and its Health 5K event have allowed us to make a concrete contribution to charitable organizations working both locally and elsewhere. Many thanks to all of the runners, walkers, organizers and donors for your wonderful show of solidarity and generosity.
