About Défi Canderel

Since 1989, Canderel has been organizing one of Montréal's biggest fund-raisers. In that time, close to 8 million dollars has been raised for cancer research at the Goodman Cancer Centre at McGill University and the Institut du cancer de Montréal at l'Université de Montréal. This money has yielded tangible, measurable results. Specialized equipment, research grants and much more has been made possible, and the universities involved take pride each year in revealing what the money raised was used for.

Many thanks to our sponsors - Great-West Life, Mansfield Athletic Club, Parasuco Jeans, Pharmascience, Reliance Construction, Prevel, Manoir St-Sauveur, and Fonds Immobilier FTQ.
