As part of the 10th edition of the Circuit bleu Charles-Bruneau, over 155 participants gathered at Parc national des Îles-de-Boucherville for the closing ceremony, after two great days of kayaking and paddleboarding. Partners, sponsors, ambassadors, child heroes and families attended the unveiling of the $320,000 raised by the event.

Participants paddled on the water for one or two days to advance pediatric cancer research, giving hope to the 2,000 children with cancer in Quebec every year. Ghilas, 4, in remission from neuroblastoma; Zoé, 7, in remission from acute lymphoblastic leukemia; and Mia, 10, in remission from Hodgkin's lymphoma, were among the heroes of this 10th edition.



Paul Doucet, Foundation spokesman and actor, expresses his gratitude for the special event that is the Circuit bleu Charles-Bruneau presented by Pelican. Paddling on the water alongside passionate and generous people is a unique experience, full of emotion and success with each edition.


The Fondation Charles-Bruneau would like to extend its warmest thanks to the participants and donors who, through their mobilization, help change the lives of thousands of children and families.

The Charles-Bruneau Foundation would like to extend its warmest thanks to all the paddlers who answered "yes" to support families affected by childhood cancer.
