The 19th edition of the 24h Tremblant held last weekend was an unprecedented success. The event raised a record $ 4,789,709, almost $ 700,000 more than last year! It also recorded a historic participation of 424 teams and 3,780 participants who mobilized their efforts to help sick and disadvantaged children through our three main beneficiaries: the Charles-Bruneau Foundation, the Senators Foundation and the Tremblant Foundation.

This 19th edition was particularly memorable thanks to the moving and inspiring story of Jacob Tourigny, who passed away last February of an aggressive form of leukemia, touched hearts everywhere. His mother Karine spearheaded the Jacob Strong movement in his memory, and her mission inspired every other team to raise their targets and work even harder for the cause. One of our ambassadors, Benoit Gagnon, and his daughter, Sophie, set themselves a daunting challenge and in spite of aches, pains and fatigue, they managed to ski together for the entire 24 hours. Team Guérison, led by athlete Alexandre Despatie and composed of young adults who all battled cancer as children, was also a huge motivation for participants who ran, skied and walked!

Everyone agrees that the 24h is a priceless experience in which organized activities, generosity of spirit, the gamut of emotions and sheer pleasure come together during a single exhilarating weekend.

Mélissa Lavergne and her musical guests Alicia Moffet, Jorane, David Laflèche, Eloi Painchaud, Damien Robitaille, Normand Brathwaite, Geneviève Jodoin and Antoine Gratton used their superpowers to heat up the outdoor stage, while the hip hop collective Alaclair Ensemble also set the Rogers Stage on fire at the foot of the slopes on Saturday night. The entire mountain resonated to the sounds of their greatest hits. Singer Marie-Mai also conquered the crowds with her performance at the closing celebrations on Sunday.
