@maplebearbrasil hosted the 10th Annual National Owner’s Convention last month at the beautiful Bourbon Atibaia Convention Centre. More than 200 participants from around the country joined together to network, learn, and be inspired by all the elements that makes Maple Bear so great.
This year’s convention was made particularly memorable with a special guest appearance on the agenda: Darrell Fox, brother of Canadian hero Terry Fox and representative of the @terryfoxfoundation, was the opening keynote speaker.
Maple Bear Global Schools is committed to creating a generation of students who are socially responsible and who believe in giving back to their communities. So, it’s a logical step in that direction to work with the Terry Fox Foundation. Darrell’s participation at the Brazil convention provided the perfect opportunity to announce the official launch of Maple Bear Global Schools Terry Fox initiative, known as the Terry Fox Thanksgiving fundraising event.
The Terry Fox will be an activity or event organized by Maple Bear Canadian schools in Brazil and will focus on celebrating Terry Fox, teaching his values and providing children a leadership role in fundraising. It will be an enriching way for students to have the opportunity to give back to their communities and to prove that one school can make a difference in the fight against cancer which knows no borders or social classes. “We want our students around the world to make a difference, firstly in their own countries but also in the global world which they are inheriting,” says Robin Pascoe, Director of Global Communications for Maple Bear Global Schools. “For that reason, we have developed a community investment strategy to enhance a culture of giving back in every country in which we operate in order to create compassionate, socially conscious local, active, and global citizens who care deeply about their communities.” Full post on the #maplebear blog.
