Centraide's March of 1,000 Umbrellas
Thousands of umbrellas: symbol of protection and diversity
For more than 20 years now, Centraide has marked the launch of its annual fundraising campaign with a great public march through downtown Montreal. In an atmosphere of festivity, some 20,000 people from Centraide’s partner companies, organizations and trade unions, as well as the agencies it supports, come together for the March of 1,000 Umbrellas in order to demonstrate their commitment to the fight against poverty and exclusion.
It is during this event that Centraide announces its campaign goal.
