Moncton, February 25, 2019 –
Preparations are well under way for the 9th edition of the Tour of Hope that will be held from July 25 to 28, 2019. With five months to go before the event, 127 cyclists are already registered. 

While registration levels are encouraging to date, the early registration date has been extended to March 15 in order to encourage those who may be interested in participating. For those who register by that date the fundraising requirement will be $1,000, rather than the $1,500 requirement for registrants after that date. Also, the total number of participants will be limited to 150 this year.

The Tour of Hope is a four-day cycling event to raise funds for the Tree of Hope campaign, while creating awareness for the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices. 

This event is also important for Assumption Life; in 2018, the company announced that it would be the presenting sponsor of the Tour of Hope for the next three years.

MONCTON, February 11, 2019 – The Delta Beauséjour’s Grand Salon was literally sparkling on Saturday, February 9 as the venue for the CHU Dumont Foundation’s 24th Valentine’s Day Gala presented by the National Bank.  The atmosphere was especially festive as attendees learned that their participation had helped organizers raise the impressive sum of $125,000.

For the organizing committee, the amount was even more than they had hoped for. “While recognizing that our expectations were high, we knew all the elements were in place for a successful evening. However, it’s always a pleasure to see your hard work translated into real dollars. Our goal was to reach a total of $120,000 and we are extremely pleased that this was surpassed”, said Marc Lanteigne, chairman of the organizing committee. “I am grateful for all the hard work and commitment displayed by my committee members. I also thank the sponsors who made this all possible by believing in our cause.”

The Valentine’s Day Gala is one of the CHU Dumont Foundation’s signature events.  Each year, parts of the funds raised are invested in the improvement of care and health services offered at the Dr.-George-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre. More than 470 people took part in the 2019 edition.

(Moncton, NB – December 20, 2018) Children needing to undergo surgery at the Dr-Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre will now have the opportunity to get to the surgical suite by somewhat unconventional means, thanks to a gift from Moncton Chrysler.

A few days before Christmas Eve, under the watchful eye of Santa Clause himself, the local automobile dealership delivered a Kidsquad Mudslinger, a motorized ride-on car for children of the paediatrics department of the Dumont UHC. This battery operated, remote-controlled vehicle can be driven by the child or controlled by a parent. “It’s a fun way to transport children to the operating room, a short trip that is often a cause of anxiety for this vulnerable clientele”, said Johanne Roy, vice-president of Clinical Services for Vitalité Health Network. When their physical condition allows, they will be able to take themselves to the operating room, rather than using a stretcher.”
