Pier-Olivier is a 13-year-old boy who suffers from a rare genetic disease. But mostly, he is a typical boy and wants to be a hockey goalie next year. He loves animals and dreams of owning a zoo one day. TELUS was touched by Pier-Olivier’s story and wanted to do something special for him. We invited him and his family to watch a Quebec Remparts game from the TELUS Box, which was specially decorated in a jungle theme. Pier-Oliver dropped the puck for the ceremonial opening face-off, was given a tour of the players’ locker room, and even met his favourite players.

For 10 years now, TELUS has been teaming up with Opération Enfant Soleil to help children like Pier-Olivier. Thanks to our customers and our team members, to date TELUS has given nearly $3 million to Opération Enfant Soleil, to help provide quality pediatric care for Quebec’s sick children. As Pier-Olivier so aptly put it, “that much money is enough to have made a lot of booboos better!”
Help us raise awareness of the plight of sick children in Quebec by joining the more than 100 people who have already shared Pier-Olivier’s story on their social networks.
Champion the cause
Until December 31, TELUS will give $25 to Opération Enfant Soleil for each new device activation with a SharePlus plan, and $50 each time a device is added to the data sharing option.
We want to rally our customers around the causes that mean the most to them. Opération Enfant Soleil is an all-time favourite, and together we can help make Quebec’s future brighter by investing in the health of children like Pier-Olivier.
