Star athletes support Centraide


November 23, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at 1 Place Ville Marie.

Star athletes will compete against hundreds of downtown office workers in a relay race against the clock up the 1,000 steps to the top of Place Ville Marie. Their challenge is to best the existing record of 2 minutes 41 seconds.

The team of star athletes will include Paralympic swimmer Benoît Huot, diver Marie-Ève Marleau, hockey player Caroline Ouellette, water polo player Christine Robinson, fencer Sandra Sassine and Paralympic sledge hockey player Benoît St-Amand.

Last year, this event raised $95,000 for Centraide.
