On May 8th, 2013, at the Montreal Science Centre, over 400 guests have attended the “All generations united” fundraising event, organised by COGIR Management Corporation for the benefit of the Fondation Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal. This fundraising event, which was highlighted by a show from international star Florence K, raised $125,000 for the Foundation. These funds will be used to support the Institut’s Research Centre in its many activities, including the development of the “Healthy aging” program implemented across AZUT and JAZZ private retirement homes in Quebec. The result of a unique partnership between Cogir Management Corporation, the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal and Dr. Richard Béliveau, Biochemistry PhD, the “Healthy aging” program aims to improve seniors’ quality of life through nutrition, prevention of degenerative diseases and recreology initiatives.



The evening was hosted by Cogir Management Corporation and the honorary presidency of Mr. Mathieu Duguay, Cogir President. It emphasized the importance of supporting the scientific research to fight, minimize and better understand the various aging-related degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease. As the evening’s spokesperson, Dr. Richard Béliveau, Biochemistry PhD and world-renowned specialist, has explained the importance of a healthy diet at every age. “It’s never too late to improve our diet and be better aware of the benefits of certain foods on our overall health,” explained Dr. Béliveau to all guests and sponsors present at the event. Cogir Management Corporation would like to thank its business partners for their generous contribution to this event.
