TP Canada Participates in Light The Night Walk
Teleperformance in Canada Participates in Light The Night Walk

On October 15th 2016 Teleperformance in Canada  walked through the streets of Montreal holding different colored lanterns signifying support for the fight against blood cancer. Gold lanterns signified those who have passed due to lymphoma or leukemia. Red signified supporters, while white lanterns signified survivors and those who are currently battling the disease. Candles lit each mile of the walk and photos of those who were affected were displayed.

Light the Night Walk is Canada’s way to honor and recognize those who have been affected by blood cancer. The walk is a promise of hope that one day there will be a cure for all 110,000 Canadians affected by lymphoma and leukemia. Every individual effort matters and can truly make a difference.

Teleperformance in Canada first decided to join the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society of Canada’s mission to raise money to help end these horrible diseases when they realized how much it really touched their sites. One of their colleagues was first diagnosed with lymphoma 4 years ago and the management team saw firsthand the toll it took on him and his family.

TP Canada’s goal was to raise $1000 but as they started to do information booths, potlucks, and other fundraisers around the sites, they were quickly approached by many employees saying that lymphoma or leukemia has either touched them or someone they knew. They began getting an overwhelming amount of support from employees either donating or signing up to volunteer to help with the Walk. In less than a month and a half, they raised over $2000. And the donations continue.

That is why Teleperformance in Canada has made the commitment to take a bigger role and continue this mission in 2017 and beyond.
