Un beau défi philanthropique pour nos équipes “Bâtir la relève” (au Québec) ou “Build the Bench” (au Canada)
Trois équipes de relève au Québec auront pour mission de faire une différence dans le cadre de notre partenariat pour les Jeux d’hiver 2010 à Vancouver. Ces équipes devront collaborer à ramasser 10,000$ (objectif national) pour nos dix athlètes canadiens sélectionnés, tout en mobilisant nos employés(es) à prendre part à chacun des événements organisés.
ENSEMBLE, nous leur souhaitons la meilleure des chances … chez Molson Coors, le développement de nos employés(es) et l’investissement communautaire sont des priorités!
Sur cette photo, on aperçoit Yves Rozon des Ressources humaines, Marieke Tremblay des Affaires corporatives et Geoff Molson entourés de nos équipes de relève du Québec (votre toute dévouée Monique Dépatie se chargeait de prendre la photo):

C’est 5,000$ que nous avons réussi à amasser au profit de nos athlètes québécois et canadiens lors de deux activités de levée de fonds qui se sont déroulées du toit de Molson basée à Montréal. Plus de 260 personnes ont pu admirer, en compagnie de nos athlètes québécois, en l’occurrence Joannie Rochette (patinage artistique), François-Louis Tremblay (patinage de vitesse) et Jean Labonté (hockey sur luge). Nathalie Lambert, chef de mission canadienne, a également assisté à une de ces soirées que l’on peut très certainement qualifier d’inoubliable … des feux d’artifice enrichis d’éclairs dans le ciel!
Merci à tous les employés Molson d’avoir contribué à ces levées de fonds, visant à faciliter le chemin à des athlètes de chez nous en route vers les Olympiques 2010 à Vancouver.

Jennifer Botterill’s (Team Canada – Women’s Hockey) Olympic medals
Wooooow! Yesterday was awesome. In celebration of International Olympic Day, Molson held BBQ’s across the country and invited Olympic and Paralympic athletes from our Fund a Champion Program to join us.
In Toronto, Jeff Batchelor (Snowboard), Billy Bridges (Sledge Hockey) and Jennifer Botterill (Team Canada – Women’s Hockey) dropped in to chat, take photos, sign autographs and play some ‘Olympic’ games with our employees. We even had a road hockey tournament in our parking lot!
Molson is a proud supporter and the Official Beer Supplier of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games, and, after getting to meet the athletes in person, chat with them, and even hold their GOLD medals, the feeling of pride is even greater. Thank you to ALL employees who joined in the games and donated to our athletes; to the organizers of the BBQs – your hard work was truly appreciated; and to our Fund a Champion Athletes across the country who took the time to visit our offices and breweries and hang out with the Molson crew – an unforgettable day.
Here are a few of many photos of the day. Check out our Flickr page to see more. Cheers, @molsontonia

Billy Bridges – Sledge Hockey
A couple months ago, Ferg wrote about one of our upcoming Olympic activities called the Fund a Champion Campaign. Today, in honour of International Olympic Day, Molson is thrilled to announce that the select group of Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Winter athlete hopefuls have been identified! Today is the official introduction of the Molson Canadian/Molson Export (Quebec) Fund a Champion Campaign. Molson is committing up to $20,000 each to a group of 10 emerging athletes from across Canada to help them in their pursuit for excellence at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Jeff Batchelor – Snowboard
The designated 10 athletes (7 Olympian and 3 Paralympian) represent Canada’s four regions (Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario and Western provinces). Each athlete will receive an initial $8,000 from the Molson Donations Fund in support of Molson’s Active Lifestyles community pillar. Molson will now call upon our employees to ‘adopt’ the athletes and encourage staff to raise additional funds in support of the athletes. Our athletes:
- Mark Arendz – Paralympic Nordic Skiing – Hartsville, PEI
- Brittany Webster – Cross Country Skiing – Caledon, ON
- Billy Bridges – Sledge Paralympian – Mississauga, ON
- Jeff Batchelor – Snowboard Halfpipe – Oakville, ON
- Francois Louis Tremblay – Speed Skating – Montreal, QC
- Joannie Rochette – Skate Canada – Ile Dupas, QC
- Jean Labonte – Sledge Paralympian – Hull QC
- Denny Morrison – Speed Skating – Calgary, AB
- Tom Velisek – Snowboard Cross – Vernon, BC
- Melissa Hollingsworth – Bobsleigh Skeleton, Eckville, AB
Joannie Rochette – Skate Canada
To see videos of all our athletes, visit Molson’s youtube channel and photos on our flickr channel.
Today, Molson employees are celebrating the news and commemorating International Olympic Day with a series of Olympic BBQs at each of our breweries and sales offices across Canada – complete with Fund a Champion athlete appearances!
More pics and deets to come. Cheers and Happy Olympic Day!

Molson has joined with the Canadian Olympic Committee Foundation and the Canadian Paralympic Committee to reach out and support athletes in pursuit of a place on the Canadian Olympic team for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Through the Canadian Olympic Committee and the Canadian Paralympic Committee, Molson President Kevin Boyce has asked for aspiring athletes to submit an application to recieve one ot ten “grants” of $8000 to be provided by Molson through the COC / CPC Foundations.
This program will be executed in concert with a fundraising drive among Molson employees across Canada. The intent is to provide funding to the COC/CPC foundations through the Molson Donations Fund and then select ten aspiring Olympians or Paralympians. Athletes will be selected from Atlantic/Nunavut, Quebec, Ontario, Western Canada/NWT/Yukon. Employees will be encouraged to support the selected athletes by raising funds on their own or supporting local sales promotions in support of the athletes.
Molson is official supplier of beer to the 2010 Games in Vancouver and is engaging in a number of programs with employees and through Molson Canadian, Coors Light and Molson Export brands over the months leading up to the 2010 Games in Vancouver.
The program has been launched through the COC and CPC who have now reached out to national sport organizations to pass along news of this opporutnity to their aspiring athletes. Athletes interested in seeking support should contact the COC or CPC for more details. Deadline for application to the program is March 24th. Applicants must be legal drinking age or older in their respective province.
Go Canada Go…cheers @MolsonFerg
