“I ride for Annabelle, a 7-year-old who was diagnosed with leukemia when she was 3.”
—Yan Morneau, Spécialiste en services financiers et en retraite, CIBC, Rive-Sud de Montréal
For me, the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau is a small glimpse of what it’s like to fight cancer through the eyes of children. I have three kids and each one of them has visited Sainte-Justine Hospital – for minor problems like ankle sprains.
It’s also the home of the Charles Bruneau oncology centre, and whenever we were there, we’d meet kids who were being treated with radiation or chemo. They are heroes. During the Tour, we wear buttons with the faces of the children we’re riding for.
I ride for Annabelle, a 7-year-old who was diagnosed with leukemia when she was 3. These incredible kids always give us that little extra boost of energy we need to finish our race and make that last pedal stroke.
Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau
July 3 to 6, 2018
Since 2005, CIBC has proudly been the title sponsor for the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau, a cycling event in support of the Fondation Charles-Bruneau.
Together with nearly 100 employee cyclists, volunteers and CIBC clients, we are raising funds for pediatric oncology research. We’re helping give children with cancer hope and the best possible chance for recovery.
The four-day tour spans 1,600 kilometres along 8 different routes. Each route has a designated child ambassador battling cancer that cyclists are paired with. They wear a button with their child ambassador for support and encouragement.
