A new record in sight

MONTREAL, Dec. 3, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - The 18th edition of Tremblant's 24h is just around the corner, running from December 7 to 9. Once again this year, more than 3,500 skiers, walkers and runners will convene at Mont Tremblant Resort with a single objective: to meet this year's fundraising target of $4.125 million in support of sick and disadvantaged children and thus surpass last year's record total of $3.868 million.
