Tremblant’s seventeenth 24h fundraiser, which took place December 7 to 9, has reached new heights. The initial goal was to beat last year’s record of $3.25 million. Mission accomplished! A total of $3,868,742 was raised for three major organizations: the Fondation Charles-Bruneau, the Senators Foundation and the Fondation Tremblant.

 

Tremblant’s 24h is a sports challenge to raise money for three major foundations dedicated to children’s causes. During 24 hours, relay teams of 6 to 12 participants took part in one of three sports: skiing, walking and running. Inaddition, major concerts and a host of activities took place over the weekend to make it an unforgettable experience for everyone.

UNITED FOR THE CHILDREN

In addition to the thousands of participants, visitors and donors, a number of celebrities, companies and organizations came together for the cause of sick or disadvantaged children.

This year, Tremblant’s 24h was once again able to count on a team of outstanding ambassadors. Benoît Gagnon, Philippe Fehmiu, Anne-Marie Withenshaw, Erik Guay, Alexandre Bilodeau, Alexandre Despatie, Lianne Laing, Dominic Arpin and Frédéric Plante helped expand the event and give it a special touch.

Major concerts like the one starring Mélissa Lavergne and her guests and a memorable performance by Simple Plan encouraged the brave troops facing winter conditions and fatigue.

Tremblant’s next 24h has already been confirmed forDecember 7, 8 and 9, 2018.
