Congratulations to our Sherbrooke colleagues who took up the Leucan Ski Challenge

Nous avons été nombreux à soutenir nos courageux collègues dans leurs collectes de fonds pour le Défi Ski Leucan et en partie grâce à notre générosité, les deux équipes engagées dans le défi ont amassé un montant total de près de 2 000 $.

Many of us supported our courageous colleagues in their fundraising efforts for the Leucan Ski Challenge, and thanks in part to our generosity, the two teams involved in the challenge raised a total of nearly $2,000. The event, which took place on March 16 at Mont Adstock, raised over $100,000!

 

During the day, our colleagues joined over 100 participants for a festive, family-friendly day with a western theme, entertainment, Mexican foodtrucks, drinks, a mini-farm and several downhill runs in support of children with cancer and their families. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., our colleagues descended the mountain of Mont Adstock, near Thetford Mines in the Chaudière-Appalaches region, a dozen times.

The weather conditions added an extra dose of challenge, with sticky snow and fog, but nothing that could dampen the enthusiasm of the FNX-INNOV teams. Even if some of them were a little sore the next day, and Michaël spent the “après-ski” sleeping in his car, our colleagues had a superb day.

A huge well done to all those who gave their time, energy and money to support the Leucan Ski Challenge.
