Canadian Cancer Society
The Fournier Montgomery Group have been involved with the Oakville unit of the Canadian Cancer Society for the past 8 years. Members of the group, together with their families, have been active participants in the annual Relay for Life event since the first year that the fundraising event was introduced in Oakville. In addition, Lyndon Fournier is a member of the Relay for Life Steering Committee as Chair of Corporate Sponsorship.
Camp Mini-Yo-We is a large childrens summer camp in Muskoka with a long history of dedication to the development of children. Andy has volunteered with this organization for 20 years. In addition, Andy is involved with general fundraising, sponsorship for low-income families that cant afford to send their children, and is also the current Chair of the Board of Directors.
The Fournier Montgomery Group has worked closely with the Terry Fox Foundation for the past 9 years. They initiated the annual Terry Fox BBQ in Oakville and through this fundraiser, have helped generate more than $150,000 in donations since its inception. Darrell Fox, National Director of the Terry Fox Foundation has been the guest of honour every year. To listen to Darrell describe his brother Terrys journey is a very moving experience every time you hear it. Terrys story is an inspiration and an incredible motivator for all of us to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by cancer.
Over the past few years we have been proud to partner with Habitat For Humanity. Through 2 key initiatives, we have raised money for local Habitat projects and for Habitat projects along the US Gulf Coast. Lyndon Fournier and Andy Montgomery, on different occasions, have joined a team of Canadians traveling to New Orleans to contribute first hand through a week-long volunteer build in Louisiana.
