About Défi Canderel
Since 1989, Canderel has been organizing one of Montreal's biggest fund-raisers. In that time, close to 6 million dollars has been raised for cancer research at the Goodman Cancer Centre at McGill University and the Institut du cancer de Montréal at l'Université de Montréal. This money has yielded tangible, measurable results. Specialized equipment, research grants and much more has been made possible, and the universities involved take pride each year in revealing what the money raised was used for.
Note to Media:
Advance interviews can be arranged with Défi Canderel Chairman Jonathan Wener and his wife Susan, as well as representatives from the Goodman Cancer Centre and the Institut du cancer de Montréal.
