Each year Tremblant’s 24h event attracts more than 30,000 people, including close to 3,000 participants, sponsors, celebrities, musicians, and journalists. Tremblant’s 24h is a sporting team challenge with three components, skiing, walking, and running. Registered teams collect donations and all profits go to three major foundations working for children’s causes. Each team has between 6 and 12 people, who relay each other over 24 consecutive hours. The event also features major concerts and a vast array of outdoor activities throughout the weekend. Tremblant’s 24h is an unforgettable experience for all who attend.
24h Tremblant funding has enabled the construction of 7 SENS RINKS giving children and families access to year-round activities including hockey, skating, ball hockey, basketball, lacrosse in addition to community activities of all kinds. These outdoor recreational facilities will provide easily accessible recreation and sport opportunities for communities within Ottawa, Gatineau and other areas across the region.
“Our partnership with the Ottawa Senators Foundation has been ongoing for the past 10 years and together, we’ve invested more than $3 million into the Ottawa and Gatineau community,” said Simon St-Arnaud, executive producer, 24h Tremblant. “Supporting the SENS Campership program, specifically specialty camps is closely aligned to the mission of the Fondation 24h and gives deserving kids an opportunity to experience the magic of summer camp.”
24h Tremblant has provided invaluable funds to Roger Neilson House to support families with children living with life-limiting illnesses. In addition to funding important recreation, sport and therapy programs for vulnerable children at the Social pediatric Centre of Gatineau.
