Media invitation - The 15th edition of Tremblant's 24h: United to celebrate 15 years of generosity

MONTREAL, Dec. 2, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - The 15th edition of Tremblant's 24h is this coming December 4 to 6 at Mont Tremblant Resort. More than 2,500 skiers, walkers, and runners will join forces with a common objective: to raise 2.5 million dollars for sick or underprivileged children.

When the much-anticipated 24h weekend arrives, it will be a time to celebrate the hard work of thousands of participants and the bravery of the children for whom the funds are being raised. Media representatives are invited to join everyone on the mountain to witness the spirit that motivates the event's organisers and participants and to hear inspiring testimonials. Registration for the event may have ended, but the time to give is now!

On the programme for this edition: concerts, activities and celebrations of all kinds in a festive atmosphere. The child ambassadors who have been paired with the participating teams will be in attendance to represent the organisations benefitting from the fundraiser: Fondation Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau, the Ottawa Senators Foundation and Fondation Tremblant.
