ABOUT THE CLAUDE GIROUX FOUNDATION:
The Claude Giroux Foundation, established in 2014, supports various organizations who better the lives of individuals and families in need throughout the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Hearst, Ontario communities.
Originally from Hearst, Ontario, Giroux announced in October of 2010 that he had chosen to associate himself with the Notre-Dame Hospital Foundation in Hearst.
“I think it’s a good cause and a lot of people back home are putting a lot of time into it, so it should be a pretty good site for fans visit,” said Giroux.
The partners of the foundation then decided to join forces and first raise funds for the construction of a new physiotherapy and rehabilitation centre named, the Claude-Giroux Centre.
"The construction of the new Centre Claude-Giroux Centre is a big project with an estimated cost of around $700,000. We hope this website will prove to be an excellent and innovative way to raise funds for this project", declared France Dallaire, member of the Foundation and CEO of the Notre-Dame Hospital.
Thanks to the support of Claude Giroux, the dream of the physiotherapy department employees may soon materialize. This wonderful project will make it possible to improve the quality of the care offered to the people of the community and will therefore open the way to the eventual diversification of services, all aimed at improving the quality of the care offered to the people of Hearst and area.
“I try to be as involved as I can be, but like I said I’m pretty lucky to have a lot of people to help me run the web site with jersey’s, t-shirts on sale for the foundation, so everyone can help out,” added Giroux.
As for the new-look CG28 logo, Claude never expected it, but loves the look the designer came up with.
“I think it’s a pretty good look and is very stylish, hopefully the kids and everyone else like it.”
