On May 3, The Nation municipality announced that the Desjardins Group donated a contribution of $150,000 from its GoodSpark Fund to The Nation Gets in Shape campaign. The money will be used to furnish the Limoges Sports Complex with sports equipment, furniture, and other resources.

This project responds to a collective need in our community, and I am convinced that it will have a lasting impact for the benefit of all citizens,» said The Nation’s mayor, Francis Brière. «On behalf of all those who will benefit from the sports complex, I would like to thank Desjardins for its undeniable community commitment.»

«It is essential to allow our youth to have access to quality sports facilities. By supporting this fundraising campaign, we are helping The Nation Sports Complex fulfill its mission to promote healthy lifestyles and create a gathering place for the entire community. This is a real example of a sustainable investment in youth. Through its GoodSpark Fund, Desjardins wishes to respond to the needs expressed by the community and support initiatives that contribute to improving the quality of life of citizens. This support is proof of that,» said Karine Foster, Regional Vice-President – Eastern Ontario at the Desjardins Ontario Credit Union.

The Nation Sportsplex features two soccer fields, a 150-person community hall, and an athletics track that allows for year-round enjoyment of sports and community activities. Thanks to the strategic location, the Nation expects several thousand people to enjoy the Sportsplex every year.
