Hygie Products in the Sahara for a Good Cause

Hygie is proud to support the TRANSAVIA team for the 30th Edition of the Marathon des Sables taking place in southern Morocco from April 3rd to 13th, 2015. This 240 km race is rightly viewed as one of the toughest races in the world. For this edition, the team joined forces with LeCoeur&LesJambes, a Quebec-based association formed by a group of running enthusiasts. The goal of this association is to organize, promote and develop competitive and leisure physical and sports activities for persons with mobility, vision, hearing and intellectual disabilities. This association has already entered several races in Quebec, including the most-recent Montréal Marathon. But the uniqueness of this particular marathon is the participation of 3 youths from Quebec, aged between 15 and 17 years old, from the CHU Sainte-Justine and the Marie Enfant Rehabilitation Centre. They will get the chance to experience a unique opportunity, similar to the famous “Joëlette” experience.

During this marathon, runners will be self-sufficient. To help them face a week of running they will only carry in their backpacks food and the strict essentials (sleeping gear and personal belongings). To make their life during this marathon easier, Hygie will supply the team with all necessary hygiene products such as pre-moistened wash gloves for cleaning and Go PEE urinal sets with Hygienic Covers. Hygienic Covers have a super-absorbent pad that quickly turns liquid into gel, which allows runners to simply tie a knot in the bag, place it in their backpack and keep on running.

This challenge wouldn’t be possible for these kids without your generous help. All donations, as small as they may be, will help these kids live an experience of a lifetime. They will be the first team in North America to accomplish this feat. To make a donation click on this link : http://bit.ly/1CJMSjZ
