To cure children with cancer:
The Fondation Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau is dedicated to fighting against pediatric cancer. Its mission is to finance research and support the development of projects intended to improve the lives of thousands of children with cancer in Quebec.
Today, the Fondation Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau announced its $1.5 million commitment over the next three years to fund the Charles-Bruneau Hematology-Oncology Day Treatment Centre at the new site of the Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH) of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). The Fondation makes its pledge as part of the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Best Care for Children campaign.
The party was going strong in Tremblant this past weekend. Over the last 3 days, nearly 2,000 participants hit the slopes at Tremblant Resort and travelled laps on foot around the mountain for one sole cause…that of children. With the 24h of Skiing and the 24h on Foot taking place simultaneously for the first time, 1,808 skiers and 150 walkers and runners joined forces to raise as much money as possible for sick and underprivileged children. And once again this year, the goal was reached by the skiers, walkers and runners, raising $2,005,653..
On September 9, 2013, close to 300 golfers gathered at the Club de Golf Le Mirage for the 18th edition of the Fondation’s golf tournament.
At the close of this magnificent day, members of the organizing committee proudly announced that the event had raised $293,000 in proceeds. These proceeds will allow the Fondation to finance the continued development of the Charles-Bruneau pediatric oncology units at the CHU de Québec and the CHUS as well as the ongoing development of fundamental research in pediatric oncology.
Serving as honorary president of the evening event was Ms. Jocelyn Trottier, Executive Vice-President and CEO of Investissements immobiliers Kevlar Inc.
The members of the organizing committee wish to extend a warm thanks to all the volunteers, donors, partners and participants for this unprecedented success.
July 6, 2013 – After cycling hundreds of kilometres throughout the province, the cyclists taking part in the CIBC Charles-Bruneau Tour gathered at the Tohu in Montreal this afternoon to give children with cancer a generous dose of hope. Once again this year, the Tour ended on an electrifying note, as spokespersons Pierre Bruneau, Paul Doucet and Pierre Jobin put their voices together to announce that the spectacular amount of $2,750,000 had been raised, surpassing the initial objective of $2.5 million. Twenty-five years after the death of Charles Bruneau, these proceeds will serve to finance various projects in pediatric oncology.
