My name is Jamie Benizri. I am the founder of Legal Logik office in Montreal and the Run to Remember and we are here today for a cause that is dear not only to our office but also to all of our partners. This cause is the Run to Remember, as part of the Montreal Holocaust Centre's Initiative. The goal of this initiative is to ensure that the people of my generation, and the people of really every generation do not forget what happened in the past, not only for the Jewish people but for every religion, for every culture.
The Run to Remember race is motivated by my grandfather Isaac and my grandmother who have inspired me throughout my life and have given me the opportunity to have the courage to continue this message. This way I can make sure that not only Jews but anyone, any culture that has gone through some kind of atrocity or hardship has the courage to come forward, and through a run or any other initiative spread the message.
