Montréal (Québec), March 12, 2013.- Known by motorsport enthusiasts for its numerous karting races, the Kart-O-Mania complex is organizing a new and exclusive event on March 29th at 6pm to benefit the Sainte-Justine UHC Foundation. Tickets for this Grand Prix karting race will be sold for $60 each with all profits going to the Sainte-Justine UHC Foundation.
This special activity is the brainchild of Kart-O-Mania owners in an effort to lend their support to Gabriel, who was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms, a rare form of epilepsy, at the young age of 5 months. Gabriel was fortunate enough to be diagnosed and immediately treated thanks to the Neurology Department at the Sainte-Justine UHC. He is now 16 months old and has made tremendous progress over the past year. Gabriel’s weekly physiotherapy and occupational therapy sessions have helped him reach some of his inch-stones. He has a long road ahead of him but Gabriel is a fighter and will battle so he can live a normal and healthy life.
Thanks to public donations, the Sainte-Justine UHC Foundation is able to help kids like Gabriel right where is counts : in the hospital. The funds raised at the Kart-O-Mania event will go directly to the Neurology Department at the Sainte-Justine UHC.
Ticket price includes a thirty-minute Grand Prix karting race, canapés by caterers Buona Notte Traiteur, and door prizes contributed by Uggs, Créations Paul H, Santa Maria Foods, and David’s Tea.
The public is invited to this special event on March 29th, at 6pm, at the Kart-O-Mania complex, located at 5196 de la Savane Street (corner of Décarie) in Montréal.
