Molson Coors Chair Aware 2010 - Launch event

Molson Coors Canada is proud to be the title sponsor for the 3nd annual Toronto Wheelchair Dare. This is our second year participating in Wheelchair Dare, a fundraising challenge that asks you to spend an entire day in a wheelchair to raise money and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Kicking off May 16th in Toronto, the fundraising campaign will challenge able-bodied people to experience what life is like in a wheelchair. This year’s goal is to raise $500,000 nationally which will help provide essential services and fund research for cures and therapies for neuromuscular disorders that affect 50,000 + Canadians.

In addition to supporting Chair Aware as a sponsor, we’ll also have a team participating in the challenge at our Toronto Office@MolsonFerg will be participating again along with many members of our Management team (including our CEO and President Dave Perkins!)
