Assumption Life Holiday Challenge Campaign a Success!
  
(Moncton, NB) – January 10, 2012Throughout the month of December the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute (ACRI) and Assumption Life invited the public to celebrate their good fortune or commemorate lost loved ones by making a donation through the Assumption Life Holiday Challenge. During this matching gift campaign, every donation made until January 7, 2012 was matched dollar for dollar by Assumption Life. We are pleased to announce that the campaign, being tracked at www.cancerresearchsaveslives.ca raised $38,030 for ACRI.
 
“I am always amazed by the outstanding support of our community,” says Françoise Roy, Executive Director of ACRI. “Cancer touches everyone at some level and as a result of that, people are very generous when it comes to helping to solve cancer. I think the knowledge that both the incidence of cancer and mortality rates are highest here in Atlantic Canada and that all money raised stays in our community to help support leading-edge research encouraged people to give during this holiday season. We are extremely thankful for everyone who donated during this campaign as well as for the ongoing support of Assumption Life.”

“We were very pleased to support the efforts of ACRI by matching all donations made over the holiday season,” says Denis Losier, Chief Executive Officer of Assumption Life. “Research is key to solving cancer and the innovative research that they are doing at ACRI is bringing us closer to finding these solutions.”
