Activities to inspire you

For several years now, the Guy Côté – National Bank Financial – Family Wealth Management Team has organized the « Pour un avenir meilleur » event to benefit the Lise Watier Foundation.

In 2013, Marie-Lise Andrade and Paule Labelle set out to climb Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. In addition to being an incredible personal challenge, they wanted this expedition to become an opportunity to raise funds for the Lise Watier Foundation.

Janie Duquette and Marie-Lise Pilote of Femmes Ensemble organized a Tupperware party with its sales professionals Maria Meriano and July Chayer who offered the sales profit of the evening to the Lise Watier Foundation. A check of 465$ was handed to Marie-Lise Andrade, general manager of the Foundation.

Would you like to participate in one of our fundraising events instead?

” I felt exhausted, so I questioned my future. The program changed my life!  It allowed me to refocus on my needs and visualize where I wanted to go. I met women who gave me confidence and shared their knowledge to help me start my own business.

I am so grateful for the Lise Watier Foundation’s financial aid for studies. Thanks to this support, I have the tools I need to become professionally accomplished and to live again. I am proud of where I am today and I know that my children are too… and you can’t put a price on that.

Go ahead, believe in your dreams because anything is possible, really, ANYTHING! Never, at 60, would I have thought it was possible… But thanks to the Let’s Start Up program, I have come out of my shell; I now realize how much potential I have, and I know I will make it.
