Top Duck Seller Joe Maxwell

The Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation is known throughout the West Island for its annual Duck Race, and the Rotary Club of Montreal-Lakeshore has many members who help to sell tickets for this great event.

This year, Rotary Club Member Joe Maxwell (pictured below) was the Top Seller of Duck Race tickets. He managed to sell over 500 tickets all over the West Island, helping to make this event a huge success!

Ride To Conquer Cancer

Rotary Club of Montreal-Lakeshore Member Kelly-Anne Frendo recently took part in Quebec’s Ride To Conquer Cancer. Along with over 1,100 other riders, she cycled approximately 230km from Montreal’s North Shore to Quebec City in two days in a fundraising event that collectively raised $4.1 million for the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital.

“I would like to express my thanks to everyone who supported me during the Ride To Conquer Cancer 2017. Thanks to friends and family from Gibraltar, Canada, UK, Spain and Singapore for helping me raise $3472, and especially to the Rotary Club of Montreal-Lakeshore for their support! 

The Ride took me 12 hours of cycling in total (approx. 230km) over two days, and was a great experience. I met many fantastic people (many of whom were cancer survivors or had lost someone to cancer) each with their own reasons for riding. It was absolutely awesome to be a part of something so worthwhile, and I hope to take part again next year.”
