One for Youth Bicycle Tour

The 5th annual One for Youth Bicycle Tour will take place from July 10 to 12. This year, some 200 National Bank employees will mount their bicycles and ride 300 km through the Eastern Townships and Montérégie region.

Training and fundraising

Over the past few weeks, participating cyclists have not only been training intensively, but they have also been working hard collecting donations for youth-oriented organizations.

For this 5th edition, the Tour will support Quebec foundations, such as Tel-jeunes, as well as four regional organizations, which it will visit: La Maison de jeunes Est, Croquarium, Granby college and Saint-Joseph high school.

The Bank will take advantage of this 5th anniversary to highlight the exceptional work of the event’s co-founders: Henriette Gendron, Mario Cantin, Normand Lessard, Claude Bilodeau and François Audy. Thank you for your unparalleled engagement and contribution to the success of the Tour from the very beginning.

Helmets off for a job well done!
