Our Goal is to collectively accumulate 6,000 km in distance for the 6,000 babies born prematurely.

This year, Préma-Québec is adding a running component to its annual Walk for Preemies.

Préma-Québec Challenge 1 st Edition will take place from September 4th to 30th, 2021.

Each year, 6,000 babies are born prematurely in Quebec.

Our objective is to collectively accumulate 6,000 km in distance, in one month.

This collective goal represent a kilometer traveled for each premature baby.

Once again this year’s event is virtual. It can take place in any location and at any time. You have one month to complete your distance, so you can extend the pleasure over several days, or even log all your kilometers in the same day. No matter what you decide, your actions will significantly contribute to the well-being of premature children in Quebec.

 

You will be able to track your run, electronically log your distance and interact with other participants on social media with the hashtag #Défi6000.

Together let’s walk and run to improve quality of life for 6,000 premature babies and their families!

How to collect donations

The golden rule of fundraising is simple: to raise money, you need to ask for it.

So spread the word!

Add a personal touch to your request.

Tell your story. How is your life affected by prematurity?

Ask everyone you know.

Extend your campaign beyond family and friends. Ask neighbours, colleagues, your doctor, trainer, grocer… In other words, everyone with whom you’re in touch regularly.

Ask for a lot.

If you ask someone for $100, he may give that amount, or $75 or $50. In any case, don’t be afraid to set the bar high.

Ask with confidence.

You’re not asking for money for your own pleasure. You’re asking for funding to help parents of premature children who need financial and emotional support to make it through a very difficult ordeal.

$200 in five days

Five minutes a day for five days will do the trick.

Follow the steps below. Use the templates and tools on our website, and you’ll be a champion fundraiser in no time!

 Day 1  Ask a family member to give $30.

 Day 2  Ask a colleague to support you with a $30 gift.

 Day 3  Ask your employer for a business donation of $100.

 Day 4  Ask five people you’ve met at an activity, at your child’s school, or at your fitness centre to give $5 each.

 Day 5  Ask five neighbours to give $5 each.

OTHER IDEAS:

  • Ask two stores that regularly receive your business to give $30. Your cleaner, hair salon, or favourite café are possibilities. Businesses often support their regular customers.
  • Ask your employer to match the total amount that you’ve raised.
  • Spread the word on social media, and you may be surprised to see who is ready to back you.
