The Sainte-Justine Circle’s Urban Duathlon is a fun and festive relay race that sees about 460 business people running and cycling through downtown Montreal. It’s also the only race in Montreal where a tie is de rigueur!
Running or cycling: Lots of fun for a good cause!
Each team, consisting of a runner and two BIXI riders, takes up the challenge of raising at least $750 in donations. At the starting line, originality is the key: everyone has to wear zany costumes, plus the Urban Duathlon official tie. Whether running or cycling, everyone has fun raising money for the mothers and children at Sainte-Justine!
Over 460 athletes and philanthropists took part in the last Urban Duathlon, held on June 15, 2017. Together they raised $333,000 (net) for the CHU Sainte-Justine. An unforgettable day in the sun!
Many thanks to all the participants, volunteers, donors and partners. See you all next year!
Since 2013, the Sainte-Justine Circle has supported Sainte-Justine’s Centre of Excellence in Neonatology to the tune of $8 million.
At the moment, 8% of children are born premature in Quebec. Malformations are the leading cause of death among newborns.
The Centre of Excellence in Neonatology promises to:
- Accelerate the pace of new discoveries through clinical research
- Develop new approaches to personalized care
- Refine the assessment and knowledge of the impact of treatments, from birth through to adulthood.
