Moncton, NB, August 19, 2022 - Once again, golfers answered the call and ensured the success of the 20th edition of the Assumption Life Golf Tournament held on August 18 at the Fox Creek Golf Club in Dieppe. For the second time in its history, this annual event raised $100,000 in one day for the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute (ACRI).
 
"Cancer is a terrible disease that affects us all. Since 2001, the Assumption Life family has been proud to do its part to support research in the fight against cancer with this annual event. Today's event is representative of our community involvement efforts to support a health-related cause and to make a difference for our people and our communities," said Sébastien Dupuis, president and CEO of Assumption Life.
 
In addition, the 150 or so participants had the opportunity to meet the guest of honour, Kamylle Frenette, a Paralympic athlete, and Assumption Life's new ambassador. The Acadian company is proud to support Kamylle on her path to the 2024 Paris Paralympic Games, and her determination is an inspiration to dream big.
 
Like last year, the Assumption Life Golf Tournament focused on supporting the local economy. New Brunswick pride and flavours were on display throughout the course with tastings of local products and an auction featuring local products and experiences.
 
 "ACRI is very grateful for the generosity of its community and the contributions of donors who continue to support our research efforts in the fight against cancer. With the support of Assumption Life and its local partners, ACRI is positioned as an important player in the development of research capacity in the region. A capacity that allows for contributions that go beyond cancer research. We are undertaking major collaborative projects with the Vitalité Health Network and the Université de Moncton to develop high-impact health research initiatives for the benefit of our communities. These initiatives would not be possible without your continued support," said Brigitte Sonier-Ferguson, ACRI's interim president and CEO.
