By Anthony Capkun
January 29, 2013 – Back in December, employees of Schneider Electric participated in Tremblant’s 24h Ski, helping the charitable sporting event surpass its 2012 fundraising objective of $2 million for Fondation Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau, Ottawa Senators Foundation, Fondation Martin-Matte and La Fondation Tremblant—all of which are devoted to children.
Over 12 years, Tremblant’s 24h Ski has raised more than $12 million for its beneficiaries, making it the biggest event of its kind in the skiing industry. This year included 215 ski and snowboard teams—and 38 walking teams (another way to participate)—for a total of nearly 2000 participants.
“It was with great pleasure and enthusiasm that Schneider Electric took part for the third year in this great adventure […] with the involvement and devotion of 26 employees,” said Schneider’s Monique Ross Lanoue, adding Schneider folk have raised about $50,000 over three years of participation.
