Victoria Park Supports the Farha Foundation's CA MARCHE With "A Walk in the Park" on Saturday September 12th

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 4, 2009) - The Farha Foundation is proud to announce the support and engagement of Victoria Park for the 17th edition of CA MARCHE.

Victoria Park is dedicating Saturday, September 12th to allow guests the chance to work out and support the Farha Foundation.

For $25, guests will have access to the state of the art gym and classes, including yoga, "extreme core", spin and TRX especially planned for the day. There will be complimentary skin consultations with the resident plastic surgeons and special rates on spa treatments. An organic brunch will be served. A portion of the proceeds from the entrance fee as well as the spa treatments will be donated to the Farha Foundation.

"As a new spa and gym in Montreal, we see the importance of giving back to the community. We realize that HIV and AIDS are real and too often forgotten. We designed the day at Victoria Park to not only allow everyone the chance to see Canada's most unique urban retreat, but also to be able to give back and support CA MARCHE and the Farha Foundation." Robert Hoppenheim, Partner, Victoria Park.

"We are grateful to Victoria Park for their commitment to the Farha Foundation. Their support contributes to our mission to better the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS in Quebec and allows us to continue to support the 50 organizations that help people living with the disease throughout the province." Linda Farha, Volunteer President Farha Foundation.
