20th Big Boost for chil­dren with can­cer

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The 20th edi­tion of the Tour CIBC Charles Bruneau, one of the big­gest fundrais­ers in Que­bec, took place over the week­end and raised $3.2 mil­lion for chil­dren fight­ing can­cer. Over four hun­dred cy­clists across Que­bec took part in six dif­fer­ent cy­cling cir­cuits, trav­el­ling 1600 kilo­me­tres in all to raise the im­pres­sive amount.

The twenty-eight Sher­brooke cy­clists be­gan their route last Thurs­day, July 9th, at the CHUS Fleu­ri­mont. They were ac­com­pa­nied by two of the event’s spokesper­sons, co­me­dian Eve Landry and jour­nal­ist Julie Mar­coux, for the fundrais­ing ride. The Sher­brooke cy­clists biked three hun­dred kilo­me­tres be­tween Sher­brooke and Boucherville to raise their share of the money for the Fon­da­tion Cen­tre de can­cerolo­gie Charles Bruneau.
