For a second consecutive year, the President and CEO of Alithya, Paul Raymond, has agreed to support the cause of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. In an effort to support children with life-threatening medical conditions, he rappelled down the building at 700 De la Gauchetière Street at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 27. The Make-A-Wish Rope for Hope initiative gives participants a chance to take part in an exhilarating activity while giving hope to sick kids. In exchange for the donations he collected for the foundation, Paul Raymond was given the chance to take this unusual trip down the 28 stories of the downtown building that is home to Alithya’s offices.
Since it was a sunny day, the employees and consultants of the Alithya team gathered to watch the prowess of the company’s President, known for staying in great shape and being able to withstand stress. As the father of two perfectly healthy children, he feels privileged and hopes to give back to those less fortunate.
