This major event, staged annually to raise funds for sick and underprivileged children, supports the Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau Foundation, the Ottawa Senators Foundation, the Martin-Matte Foundation, and the Tremblant Foundation.
Participate in the 11th edition of the 24h of skiing. December 9-11 2011.
24 hours! That’s 1,440 minutes or 864,000 seconds, or the time it takes the earth to rotate once on its axis. That’s a very short period! But the memories of participating in an event that makes a difference in the lives of many, lasts forever. Participate in the 11th edition of the 24h of skiing. December 9-11 2011.
The 24h isn’t just about skiing. Three days of non-stop festivals and concerts and endless entertainment options make for an unbeatable atmosphere and exciting vibe throughout the resort village, all in the name of raising money for children’s causes!
Location(s) of Business
In 1998, Jacques Villeneuve and Craig Pollock founded a non-profit association called Formula Charity. Their mission was to create events to raise money for childhood illnesses. Shortly after the creation of Formula Charity, the association hosted a large-scale annual event in Switzerland, the 24h de Villars, to raise money for a charitable cause in the host region.
When the Grand Prix 24h de Villars comes to town, a festive atmosphere pervades the mountain and village, and Villars-sur-Ollon becomes THE place to be in Switzerland. At this grand event, celebrities from the Formula 1 circuit mingle with the business community, as well as with sports, music and fashion celebrities, to raise money for sick children.
The Event Comes to Tremblant!
In December 2001, Formula Charity introduced the event to Québec, hosting the first edition of the 24h de Tremblant. The Canadian event was a major success, thanks in part to the European experience, and its future looks extremely promising.
The 24h de Tremblant is THE social rendezvous of the year, where the general public, business people, media reps, and artists and celebrities congregate to raise money for childhood diseases. The 24h de Tremblant is a festive celebration that brings together philanthropists and sport enthusiasts.
This charitable event is now an annual tradition in Québec and the 7th annual North American edition will be run on the slopes of Tremblant December 11 to 13, 2009. Mr. Pierre Rodrigue (President Astral Media Radio) will assume the Presidency.
The 24h de Tremblant is proud to support various children's causes. For the fifth consecutive year, the Fondation Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau, their mission is to increase the odds of finding a cure for children with cancer by providing financial assistance for the creation, maintenance and development of the Centre de cancérologie pédiatrique Charles-Bruneau.
From the outset, this event has also raised funds for Fondation Tremblant to help under-privileged children in the Mont-Tremblant region. This year, we are pleased to announce that the Ottawa Senators Foundation will be implied, again. It supports programs designed to improve the quality of life for underprivileged children and youth, is also associated with the event.
The 24h de Tremblant is the most highly anticipated event of the winter!

The Sens Foundation
Founded in 1998, the Sens Foundation utilizes the unique resources of the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of children and youth in the eastern Ontario and western Quebec.
The mission of the Sens Foundation is to leverage and provide both financial and in-kind support to registered charitable organizations whose programs focus on improving the quality of life for children and youth. We address needs in the areas of education, health, and recreation. Our vision at the Foundation is "for greater goals" in meeting these needs.
The Sens Foundation is largely supported through event fundraising, corporate partnerships, and private donors. Since inception, the Sens Foundation, together with the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club, alumni, corporate partners, and fans have raised and dedicated more than $50 million in support to a variety of community initiatives.
The charity of choice of the Sens Foundation is Roger's House, a pediatric palliative care home located on the grounds of the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). Annually, the Sens Foundation is committed to providing $300,000 of financial support to Roger's House. In addition to this financial commitment we look after the administration of all fundraising related initiatives on behalf of Roger's House.
In addition to the commitment to Roger’s House, we are proud to make a direct impact in the lives of so many each year. During the 2006-07 hockey season we provided more than $1 million of support to more than 50 charitable organizations in the National Capital Region.
This major event, staged annually to raise funds for sick and underprivileged children, supports the Centre de cancerologie Charles-Bruneau Foundation, the Ottawa Senators Foundation, the Martin-Matte Foundation, and the Tremblant Foundation.
