It is essential to give back locally to the region that has generously hosted Tremblant’s 24h event for 20 years. Over 3 million dollars have been donated to the Fondation Tremblant since 2001 to support its mission of coming to the aid of disadvantaged and special needs children in the MRC des Laurentides. The Fondation Tremblant gives these children a chance for a better quality of life, and in this way, to develop their full potential. The Fondation plays a key role in allocating donations to the projects that they deem to be the most relevant and urgent, put forward by accredited and recognized non-profit organisations in the region.
