A unique fundraiser on Saturday saw 37 people raise more than $33,000 for children who are living with a life-threatening illness.
Deadlifts for Dreams took place in St. Malo in support of the Dream Factory and 4-year-old Ethan from Ste. Agathe, who lives with cystic fibrosis.
Andrew Kussy says this was a very successful fundraiser and it comes at a good time.
“We have more Dream kids than ever that we’re trying to make dreams come true for,” he says. “So, events like this are crucially important. Even more so when they exceed their fundraising goal like this one has, it allows us to do more for more kids.”
Deadlifts for Dreams has raised over $100,000 in the past 4 years.
Kussy admits this event is a unique way to raise money.
“We’re connecting with a very specific community that is really excited about doing good work in our community,” he says. “And it’s different. It’s different and it’s fun. There’s not a lot of deadlifting fundraisers out there and we’re proud to be part of this one.”
