27th edition of the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau: $3,550,000 net raised

MONTREAL, July 7, 2023 /CNW/ – The 27th edition of the CIBC Charles-Bruneau Tour concluded this afternoon as the 770 cyclists crossed the finish line in Boucherville. Pedaling on one of the 11 routes, the cyclists covered over 2,345 kilometers to support the cause, resulting in a net amount of $3,550,000 raised. Our goal has been surpassed!

The 2023 edition of the event, which brought together a record number of 1,125 participants, will allow the Charles-Bruneau Foundation to continue its mission of providing the best chances of recovery for children with cancer through funding research and the development of projects in pediatric hemato-oncology. Congratulations to everyone who participated in the CIBC Charles-Bruneau Tour, whether near or far. Thanks to the involvement of all the participants, volunteers, and partners, the 27th edition is a success and allows the Foundation to once again affirm its commitment to collaborate so that all children with cancer can heal and live healthy lives.

An edition under the theme of heat

This year’s heat will have left its mark on many, as cyclists had to battle extreme temperatures of over 40 degrees with the humidity. The entire team was mobilized to ensure that all cyclists were adequately hydrated, and many had fun, water guns in hand, to refresh the groups. The extra challenge brought an even greater sense of accomplishment, and it was with smiles on their faces that the cyclists crossed the finish line.

Together towards a childhood without cancer!

For this 27th edition of the CIBC Charles-Bruneau Tour, inspiring young ambassadors shared their stories and embodied the values of solidarity and resilience to encourage participants to pedal for the cause. The Foundation congratulates and thanks the 51 children who participated in the heart pairing, as well as the six child heroes who got involved this year:

  • Victoria Paquin, 14 years old – heroine of the 4-day route;
  • Malik Fontaine, 5 years old – hero of the Quebec route;
  • Charles Leduc, 10 years old – hero of the Sherbrooke route;
  • Alyah Lavoie, 8 years old – heroine of the Gatineau route;
  • Olivia Grenier, 6 years old – heroine of the Discovery route;
  • Mia Lafrenière, 10 years old – hero of the remote route.
