The 23rd edition of the CIBC Charles-bruneau Tour officially launched
The CIBC Charles-bruneau cycling Tour held the official launch Thursday for its 23rd Edition, aiming to raise more than $3.3 million to help children afflicted with cancer in Quebec.
This year, three courses are now offered in the Estrie to offer cyclists different challenges:
The Discovery Course, Sherbrooke Saturday, June 9 (2nd edition): a 50 or 80 km loop;
The Courage Course on July 5 and 6 (8th edition): 300 km over 2 days between Sherbrooke and Boucherville;
The Inspiration Course, on July 6: 140 km in one day between Bromont and Boucherville.
The tour is the Foundation’s flagship event, which helps children with cancer and which seeks ever greater objectives. The 2018 edition hopes to accommodate more than 600 cyclists, on all eight courses.
The CIBC Charles-bruneau Tour has been one of the largest fundraising events in Quebec for 23 years and thanks to its major partners and cyclists, the event has generated more than $22 million since 1995, traveling more than 22,000 kilometers across Quebec. The public is invited to follow the event on the Foundation's Facebook, Twitter, Instagram (#TOURCCB) and Youtube platforms.
Both seasoned and amateur cyclists can challenge themselves by registering online. The platform also allows participants to follow the progress of their fundraising in real time, encourage their friends, and stay on top of all the news about the CIBC Charles-bruneau Tour at charlesbruneau.qc.ca/tour-cibc.
