LA CLASSIQUE D'ATHLÉTISME DE MONTRÉAL SUPPORTS THE #STANDFORUKRAINE CAMPAIGN WITH A 1700$ DONATION

Montréal, 17 july 2022 - Thanks to the many spectators who came to cheer on the athletes at La Classique d'athlétisme de Montréal last June 5, we are proud to present today a donation of $1,700 to the Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral of Sainte-Sophie in Montréal. The donation was given during our visit to the Ukrainian refugee support center of the church located in the Rosemont district of Montréal. Several

families were present as the center is

very busy offering clothes and all kind

of goods. For the first time in its history,

La Classique d'athlétisme de Montréal

put tickets on sale and the experience

was very well appreciated by the

spectators present at the Claude-

Robillard complex. ​ All our thanks to

Mr. Simon Kouklewsky who welcomed

us at the refugee aid center and

accepted the check in the name of the

beneficiaries of the Cathedral.
