Brunet Helps Children's Dreams Become Reality

Dreams Come True as the Brunet-Children's Wish Foundation Provincial Tour Raises $10,000

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 15, 2012) -

Editors Note: A photo for this release will be available via Marketwire on the picture wire of The Canadian Press.

The Brunet-Children's Wish Foundation Provincial Tour has engendered a tremendous outpouring of generosity and spurred participation in the MaSanté program.

Tour ambassadors crisscrossed the province in late 2011, visiting 131 Brunet and Brunet Plus locations throughout Quebec where they invited as many customers as possible to sign up for MaSanté.

The response was extraordinary, as thousands of individuals signed up for MaSanté, with $1 donated to the Children's Wish Foundation for each person registered.

All together, the tour, along with donations made at pharmacies, raised a total of $10,000 that will be used to grant the wishes of a child afflicted with a life-threatening illness.

Brunet employees can be proud of this initiative. Through their generous support for the foundation, they give hope to kids whose daily lives are disrupted by illness and repeated hospitalizations. The Children's Wish Foundation expects to grant over 1,000 new wishes this year. For more details, visit www.childrenswish.ca.

With the MaSanté program, customers can view their pharmacy records online at www.brunet.ca, refill prescriptions, set up medication reminders, and monitor their health.

The Brunet-Children's Wish Proviniclal Tour took place from November 3 to December 11, 2011.
