2019 Peace Medals

Thursday, October 3, 2019

Thank you 550,000 times over for supporting the YMCA Peace Medals Gala, presented by Desjardins.

Hosted by Gregory Charles, this year’s gala brought together more than 500 guests at Montréal’s Bonsecours Market.

Our Honorary Laureates were Judy Richards and Yvon Deschamps. Truly devoted, this couple shares a strong desire to help those around them.

Because of all of you, the YMCA Peace Medals Gala raised $550,000, a record amount! All proceeds go towards YMCA school success programs and TeenZones.

Thank you to Desjardins for presenting the event, to our Peace Ambassador, Cogir Real Estate, and to our sponsors: Manulife, CIBC, RBC Royal Bank, CN and M.D. Rénovations Générales Inc.

A record-breaking crowd at the YMCA Challenge

Saturday, May 4, 2019

A record-breaking crowd gathered at Parc Maisonneuve on May 4 to celebrate being active and to support youth and families at the YMCA Challenge. In fact, nearly 1,400 people participated in one of four races, on top of hundreds of spectators who came to cheer on younger and older runners and enjoy lots of family activities.

Thank you for helping us to prove once again this year that fitness and fun go hand in hand to support the cause!
