Oven-Baked Tradition at Tremblant’s 24h of skiing

What a weekend! Tremblant’s 24h of skiing is an annual rendez-vous for Oven-Baked Tradition: All year long, Oven-Baked Tradition’s team organizes several fundraising activities to collect money for the Fondation Charles-Bruneau, which cares for children with cancer. This summer’s Lave-eau-chien where you were all so generous was one of those fundraising activities.

Friday, the team drove to Mont-Tremblant in a small snowstorm! Even Mother Nature (FINALLY) manages to be generous with the weather so that we were able to ski comfortably and safely during the challenge. We finally got to Mont-Tremblant, and we were feeling proud and confident with the $70,000 we raised. It was $13,000 more than the amount raised last year. Since our first participation in 2007, Oven-Baked Tradition collected close to $220,000 to help sick children. Fundraising is a challenge…now it was time to do the other challenge, the actual skiing! 24 hours of gliding down the slopes is a fun but also tiring team experience!

And thanks to you and all our generous sponsors, we finished in first place! A special thanks to Oven-Baked Tradition, Antonio Moreau, William Houde, Fregard, Choquette Transport, and our team members, David Gaucher, Benoit Bachand, Johanne Choquette, Jean Philippe Hébert, Karine L. Labrecque, François Hébert, Pierre-Luc Barré, Virginie Bourque, Mélanie Tétreault, Mélanie McDuff and Jessica Hébert. The 200 teams participating at the 11th edition of Tremblant’s 24h of skiing raised collectively $1,832,169.92 to the delight of children and their families. Congratulations to everyone!

Again, thanks to every one of you, and see you again for next year’s edition! Now, we are taking a well-deserved break to rest our tired legs before we start all over again in 2012 with other fun fundraising activities!
