Walk for the 22nd Year with the Farha Foundation at ÇA MARCHE 2014

Join the Foundation for the most important HIV/AIDS fundraising walk in Quebec

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Sept. 10, 2014) - The Farha Foundation, Quebec's leading HIV/AIDS fundraising organization, officially launches ÇA MARCHE 2014. On September 27, 2014, the Farha Foundation will once again host the 22nd edition of its largest fundraising event, ÇA MARCHE, a walk that aims to end discrimination and bring the community together. This community gathering in support of HIV/AIDS will take place on Saturday morning for the first time ever!

Starting from Parc Émilie-Gamelin (corner St-Catherine East and St-Hubert), participants will follow a seven-kilometer route through the streets of downtown Montreal. The Foundation is challenging everyone in the community, young and old, two and four-legged friends included, to join the Farha Foundation in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

"ÇA MARCHE supports our commitment to the HIV/AIDS community in Quebec. The funds raised will be directed to prevention and education programs and to those affected by the disease," states Linda Farha, Farha Foundation Spokesperson. " The campaign runs until December 1, 2014 and I urge our community to come out, help us show their support; making a difference in the lives of over 20,000 men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS."

The Farha Foundation would like to thank the sponsors whose contributions make ÇA MARCHE 2014 possible: our Gold Sponsors, Bristol-Myers Squibb Canada; CTV, Gilead Sciences Canada, Zenergy Communications, Rouge FM, Virgin Radio; Our Silver Sponsor, AbbVie; and our Bonze Sponsor Maisonneuve. We are also extremely grateful to our supporting partners, volunteers and dedicated staff.
