2015 will mark the 20th edition of the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau. For the occasion, a promotional video featuring little Éloïse and the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton team has just been launched to encourage companies to support the fight against pediatric cancer.

Éloïse’s courage: a source of motivation and engagement

Remember that the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton cycling team was created to help sick children, and especially to support little Éloïse, daughter of Nicole Parent, Senior Consultant, Strategic and Performance Consulting, at the Montréal office. Éloïse has been battling leukemia for two years, undergoing weekly chemotherapy. We are delighted to announce that her treatments were completed last summer, when her test results showed she was in remission!

In conclusion, the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton cycling team has participated in the event for the past two years, raising $35,000 in 2014 and no less than $65,000 over a two-year period! The objective of the Tour’s 20th edition is to raise $3 million. We thank the members of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s extended family, who have become engaged and made an effort in some way, and who will continue to do so in the future!
