Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to recognize the remarkable contribution of the cycling team who participated in the 19th edition of the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau last July 4. The team’s efforts raised $35,000 to fight pediatric cancer.

A team inspired and motivated by Éloïse…

Our team rode the 110 km between Saint-Hyacinthe and Boucherville 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 are now completed and that her test results show she is in remission! She can therefore live a normal life as a young girl. We hope this will help distract her from the difficulties of the past two years.

We sincerely thank the members of the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton community who supported the team, either by sponsoring one of our cyclists or by participating in one of the many internal financing activities.
