RBC Challenge for Centraide: 350 000 $ to give vulnerable people a step up

Montreal, November 27, 2019 – Today, professional athletes and 660 corporate employees spent their lunch break taking part in the 22nd RBC Challenge for Centraide, a relay race up the steps of Place Ville Marie, and raised $350,000 from the event.

The challenge had two goals: break the record up this landmark building in downtown Montreal in less than 2 minutes, 38 seconds and raise money for Centraide of Greater Montreal to give people experiencing poverty and exclusion a step up in life.

Organized in collaboration with Place Ville Marie, this year’s edition of the sports challenge resulted in $25,000 more than last year.

The professional athletes who joined this year’s challenge were Eric Radford (figure skating), Camille Ruest (figure skating), Benoit St-Amand (sledge hockey), and Andrew Wolfe (figure skating).
