For the eighth year in a row, Schneider Electric Canada, the global specialist in energy management and automation, participated as a proud sponsor in the 17th annual Tremblant 24h.
The Tremblant 24h is the biggest fundraising event in the ski industry in North America. Inspired by the Grand Prix 24 heures de Villars in Switzerland, the Tremblant 24h is a 24-hour relay race first organized in 2001 by Formula Charity (founded by former Formula One driver Jacques Villeneuve and his business manager Craig Pollock).
With support from family, friends, employees, and the company, Schneider Electric Canada employees raised funds and presented a cheque for $101,840 to support local children’s causes. The company was one of 366 teams participating in this year’s events, which took place December 8-10, 2017 in Mont-Tremblant, Québec.
Since first participating in 2010, Schneider Electric Canada has raised more than $350,000 for Tremblant 24h.
In total, this year’s event raised $3,868,742 to be donated to the Fondation Charles-Bruneau, the Ottawa Senators Foundation, and Fondation Tremblant.
