Marcel Bertrand Memorial Business Award

After being diagnosed with ALS in February of 2000, Marcel Bertrand worked tirelessly on behalf on the ALS Society of Manitoba, taking on such roles as board member, educator, advocate and major fundraiser. Marcel served two terms as president of the ALS Society of Manitoba and was instrumental in the planning and reconstruction of Brummitt-Feasby ALS House. Marcel received numerous local and national commendations for his work with the Society before his death in July 2007.

In recognition of Marcel’s exceptional ability to garner support from the business community for his work, this award is presented annually to honour a business which has made a significant contribution both in volunteerism and financial support to the ALS Society of Manitoba and people living with ALS.
