Press release
For immediate release

DESCHAILLONS, June 5, 2023 – The go Sport stores and their sister banner Chaussures Pop, had something to celebrate yesterday during the Opération Enfant Soleil Telethon when they donated the largest amount in their philanthropic history!

Indeed, during the 7 weeks of the campaign, the dedicated and passionate teams sold Maison Enfant Soleil tickets signed Bonneville 2023 at $12, the entire amount of which was donated to Opération Enfant Soleil. The result is impressive, representing an increase of 89% compared to our first year of partnership with the organization.

" We have reason to be proud to hand over $200,038, which is the result of great teamwork. You should know that the most important value for Go Sport and Pop Shoes is the family. Knowing that these funds will be redistributed to hospitals across Quebec, which can accommodate the children of our customers, and will allow sick children to benefit from better care, touches our hearts.", confides André Côté, general manager of the Pop Shoes and Go Sport stores.



Internal competitions, daily, weekly or monthly challenges, friendly challenges, clothing in the colors of Opération Enfant Soleil, friends or family invited as reinforcements, solicitation of donations from local businesses: merchants and their teams deployed a host of tricks in an effort to reach the initial goal of $125,000.

A goal quickly exceeded
It only took two weeks to understand that the objective, although audacious, was quickly going to be exceeded. The boost from the Go Sport stores, Pop Shoes' sister company, will of course have made it possible to have a great start for this second philanthropic campaign. Quickly on one side or the other, the walls were filled with little cardboard figures, while customers who bought tickets had the opportunity to write their names on them and thus leave a mark of their generosity. The children found it very amusing and some merchants even went so far as to let them affix their snowman wherever he wanted inside the store. In short, there was a real invasion of little guys who hung a smile on the lips of anyone who came into the store.
