The McCarthy Tétrault team completed 259km around the magnificent Lac St-Jean and thus succeeded their first stage of the 2021 Défi Petits Renards on Saturday, July 31. What a great sporting and human experience to support the financing of the Centre de Pédiatrie Sociale en Communauté de Verdun, les Petits Renards! We leave with a great sense of accomplishment and a head full of beautiful images and precious memories. I am extremely proud of all the members of our team who participated in this epic tour.
Thank you to my wonderful teammates: my wife Dr. Suzanne Pelletier, pediatrician at CPSC les Petits Renards, my associates and colleagues Jean Lortie, Chrystelle Chevalier-Gagnon and Mathieu Bernier-Trudeau, our son Charles Pelletier-Gagné, supported by cyclists Louis Massé and Anne-Elisabeth Simard who joined us in the last segment of the ride. A special thank you to our daughter Juliette Gagné, an indispensable Sports Director, logistical support, supply and security and most of all, a heartfelt thank you to all our generous donors who support the Little Foxes Challenge fundraising campaign. We are about $27,000 short of our campaign goal of $100,000 and I am confident that we will succeed in reaching this goal, for the benefit of vulnerable children in the Greater Montreal South West. Those who have not yet donated can still support our fundraising efforts through one of the links below.

We are looking forward to completing the second stage of our challenge, a 125 km tour of the Eastern Townships with the McCarthy Tétrault team, which will bring together about 20 cyclists on the weekend of August 21. This tour of the Eastern Townships promises to be just as memorable!
