This important partnership will boost the event's momentum over the next few years. Coming on the heels of pandemic challenges, this support spells welcome news for the future of the 24h Tremblant. Sun Life's financial contribution allows the organization and participants to focus entirely on raising funds for children's causes. And we are witnessing the enthusiasm: more than 320 teams have already signed up. At this rate, our goal of 500 teams in 2022 is well within reach!
"Sun Life is pleased to be associated with this major winter sports challenge, a favourite with sports enthusiasts for the past 21 years," said Robert Dumas, president and CEO of Sun Life Quebec. "At Sun Life, we're building a healthy future for our clients, employees, and communities. We share the values of wellness and surpassing oneself that are promoted by 24h Tremblant. We are looking forward to being at the starting line on December 10."
"We are very pleased to have Sun Life join us as a major partner for our 22nd edition on the mountain," said Simon St-Arnaud, executive producer of the 24h. "This alliance is much more than financial support. Sun Life will participate actively in the event with its own teams, which are doing their own donation drives, and improving the experience in many ways for participants. That is the definition of a real partnership."
The next edition of the 24h Tremblant takes place this coming December 9 to 11. Skiers, runners and walkers are invited to join the event and experience a weekend of sports and fun in support of children's causes. A notable new feature this year is that alpine touring has been added to the disciplines.
