For the 4th consecutive year, the Pharmaprix franchise at 10 de la Triade in Pointe-Claire raised funds through the Pharmaprix Aimez.Vous program organised at the store and is donating $1,416 to the West Island Multiple Sclerosis Self-Help Group (WIMS).
Owner-pharmacist Marco Vernacchia is a strong supporter of the group since one of his employees is affected by the disease. In addition, all the employees of this pharmacy work in great solidarity for their colleague and friend and are happy to support a group that supports those living with Multiple Sclerosis.
Donations were collected at the cash and some participants also had the chance to win an iPad. The funds will be put directly towards the WISM group’s weekly activities which include seated yoga and adapted aquafit.
