/R E P E A T -- Media Invitation - Tremblant's 24h - A 16th edition driven by children's causes/

MONTREAL, Dec. 5, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - The 16th edition of Tremblant's 24h is this coming December 9 to 11 at Mont Tremblant Resort. More than 2,500 skiers, walkers, and runners will join forces with a common objective: to raise $2,750,000 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 participants and to hear inspiring testimonials. Registration for the event may have ended, but the time to give is now!

On the program 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 organizations benefitting from the fundraiser: Fondation Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau, the Ottawa Senators Foundation and Fondation Tremblant.
