Nearly 500 Concordians walked the 6.5-kilometre walk on September 25, from the new green space at de Maisonneuve Blvd. and Guy St. to the Loyola Campus, and they had great weather for it.
This year, the Shuffle raised more than $62,063, thanks to innumerable people, from Board of Governors member Rick Renaud, who raised almost half that amount single-handedly, to 19 Shuffle Committee members, 35 volunteers and all the walkers and family, friends and colleagues who pledged to support them.
The event began with a touching moment, when the son of former Board of Governors member Humberto Santos, who passed away last year, took over his father's pledge to participate in the Shuffle.
Then media personalities Rosey Edeh and Leslie Roberts helped warm up the shufflers at the start of the walk, and Mix 96's John Moore played the wacky emcee at the Loyola Campus. Moore made passes at the Stinger bee mascot, and joked that Concordians would be recognizable by the Coty scent, since there were so many Coty prizes handed out.
Among the top fundraisers were Amely Jurgenliemk ($1,000), Randy Swedburg ($1,000) and Darcy Sowden ($900).
Some internal departments went above and beyond the call of duty: Bookstores, Conference Services, IITS, Information Services, Marketing Communications, Physical Resources, Distribution Services, Printing Services and Public Relations. Internal sponsors of the event included the Bookstore, CUPEU, CUPFA, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Computer Store, Continuing Education, IITS, Physical Resources, Printing Services and the Sports Medicine Clinic.
Remember that pledges are no good without the money behind them, so please honour your pledges. Tax receipts will be sent out early in 1999.
