Schneider Electric teams helps 24h Tremblant Foundation raise over $54,000

Once again, employees of Schneider Electric participated in Tremblant’s 24h Ski, helping the charitable sporting event surpass its 2013 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 15 years, Tremblant’s 24h Ski and walk 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 36 walking and running 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 fifth year in this great adventure […] with the involvement and devotion of 48 employees,” said Schneider’s Monique Ross Lanoue, adding that Schneider folk have raised about $130,000 over five years of participation.
