Simon Geoffroy was medivaced in critical condition to Vancouver recently after being hit on his bike crossing the road in Takhini, Whitehorse. He was recovering well, but he had some complications last week.

Simon is making progress every day with his mother Sylvie and  his father Christian by his side. His brother Étienne is also down there again right now. Sylvie has given us permission to raise some money to help them stay there with Simon.  Some fundraising took place at Yukon College (Merci Nicole) but those funds have run out.

We invite you to help the family during this difficult time.  Donations can be made securely through this website, and we have opened a bank account for local  donations. We invite creative friends to take on any fundraising event you can think up ....big or small.

Simon's familiy want to thank  the many of you who have already supported them so far, in so many ways. 

Take a look at pictures of Simon on his bike, on his skis, out enjoying the beautiful Yukon wilderness - it inspires us to do what we can to get him back out there.

Please let us know if you can think of other ways to help out. This will be a long journey for Simon and his family and we want them to know that their community is behind them 100%.  Please share this campaign widely... let's get this funding started!


Récemment, Simon Geoffroy a été transporté en urgence, dans un état grave,à Vancouver aprés avoir été frappé par un van alors qu'il traversait la route à Takhini,à Whitehorse. Il avait fait de bons progrés mais la semaine dernière il a subi des complications. 

Simon progresse tous les jours, entouré de sa mère Sylvie et de son père Christian. Son frère Etienne était également avec lui ces derniers jours. Sylvie nous a autorisé à faire une levée de fonds pour leur permettre de rester avec Simon. Une première levée de fonds a eu lieu au Yukon College ( Merci Nicole) mais ces fonds sont épuisés.

Nous vous encourageons à aider la famille de Simon dans ces moments difficles. Les dons peuvent être faits de façon sécuritaire à travers ce site. Nous avons également ouvert un compte en banque pour les dons locaux. Nous invitons nos amis créatifs à organiser d'autres genres de levée de fonds...petites ou grandes.

La famille de Simon remercie tous ceux d'entre vous qui les avez aidés jusqu'à maintenant et ce de différentes façons.

Voici des photos de Simon avec son vélo de montagne, sur ses skis, en plein air profitant des beautés suvages du Yukon. Cela nous inspire à faire tout ce que nous pouvons pour le ramener ici!!!

SVP, laissez- nous savoir si vous avez d'autres idées pour aider. Le chemin vers la guérison va être long pour Simon et nous voulons que sa famille sache que la communauté les appuie à 100%! Merci de diffuser cette campagne partout. Que cette levée de fonds commence!!!

Simon is back in Whitehorse after 20 weeks at the hospital and rehab center with mom or dad with him almost all the time because of friends and community generosity. It contributed a lot to Simon's recovery, and it was an essential part of the amazing recovery.

Thanks a lot!
Sylvie and Simon ( and Etienne)

Simon has been transferred from Vancouver General Hospital to a rehabilitation centre in Vancouver. We are happy that he has been given permission to stay out of the Centre for the weekends to be with his family, who are still in Vancouver with him. Simon is working toward a return to a more active life. The support of his friends & community helps him a lot and he can't wait to be back in the Yukon.

We are hopeful that Simon and his mother will be able to return to Yukon before Christmas.

A group of students from Académie Parhélie, supported by AFY & The French school board are organizing a fundraiser supper October 2nd at the Francophone Community Centre, 302 Strickland street in Whitehorse, 5-7:30 pm.

Thanks to the generosity of several Whitehorse businesses there will be many amazing door prices as well as a silent auction.

The price of supper will be 15 $ including a delicious desert.

All donations are welcome!

Simon a quitté l’hôpital général de Vancouver cette semaine pour aller dans un centre de rééducation à Vancouver.

Il peut passer ses fin de semaine hors du Centre avec sa famille qui est toujours avec lui à Vancouver.

C'est un retour progressif à la vie active. Le soutien de la communauté l'aide beaucoup et il a hâte de rentrer au Yukon. Nous espérons que Simon et sa mère pourrant être au Yukon avant Noël.
Join Simon's friends for a great supper!

Dear Friends and community,

We want to sincerely thank you for all your support, donations and messages of love and encouragement. Today, we want to share with you an update on Simon condition :

After a month, Simon is still in the intensive care unit at Vancouver General Hospital. He did not recover from the severe complications. When he will be ready to leave the hospital, Simon will need several months of rehabilitation to recover his abilities. He is grateful knowing that his parents will be able to stay with him all the time because of the generosity of the community and everywhere else. Everything that is going on for him in the community is very comforting for Simon.

We really appreciate your help. Thank you.

Message de Simon et sa famille :

Chers Amis et communauté,

Nous vous remercions sincèrement pour votre soutien, vos dons ainsi que tous vos messages d'affection, d’appui et d'encouragement.
Aujourd’hui, nous souhaitons vous partager une mise à jour sur la condition médicale de Simon:
Après un mois, Simon est toujours dans le service des soins intensifs à l’hôpital général de Vancouver. Il ne s’est pas remis des complications qui se sont produites il y a 2 semaines. Dès qu’il pourra quitter l’hôpital, il devra aller dans un centre de rééducation pour plusieurs mois afin de retrouver ses capacités. La générosité de toute la communauté et de partout ailleurs lui fait chaud au coeur. Cela le réconforte de savoir que ses parents pourront, grâce à cela, rester auprès de lui jusqu'au bout.
Nous apprécions énormément votre aide. Merci.
