Ambassadors of the 24h Tremblant
You realize how fortunate you are when you see how courageously the children from Centre de Cancérologie Charles-Bruneau are fighting! I’m really pleased to donate my time to serve as a Tremblant 24h Ambassador… Come out to have fun on the slopes and join us in celebrating the 7th anniversary!
As an independent producer, Philippe has been participating in the event for the past five years by producing video capsules and reports. This energetic man wears many hats: in addition to being an artist, he is also a director, producer, a developer of interactive content and a director of corporate development. He is eager to become more involved in the project.
Mélanie returns once again this year. She joined the team in 2004 and really enjoyed the experience. She is an enthusiastic athlete and a young retiree from the Downhill World Cup circuit and still has a great passion for skiing. Mélanie has always supported children's causes and has chosen to give her time and energy to the 24h, as well as to her own cause, the Mélanie Turgeon Funds.
On the ice and in the community, Chris Phillips continues to show he is a true leader. The veteran Senators defenseman is an alternate captain who played all 82 games last season, often matched up against the opposition's top scorers. Away from the ice, Phillips serves as a co-chair of the local chapter of Candlelighters. Now, as a new member of the 24h de Tremblant ambassador team, he is proud to lend his support to an event that raises awareness and funds for charities supporting children and their families dealing with difficult cancer health issues.
Laurie is no stranger to Tremblant. Her first World Cup victory was here - the first win for a Canadian on Canadian snow. This Hall of Famer has hosted a number of charitable ski events for Cystic Fibrosis and Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities. Laurie is thrilled to join, for a second years, the Ambassador team of the 24h de Tremblant event where her professional success on the slopes allows her to give back to those in need.
Sports has always been a passion for Lianne, who was born and raised in Ottawa. Equally important is her passion for giving back. Lianne sits on the board of the Snow Suit Fund of Ottawa, gives motivational speeches at high schools and sports forums and participates in many fundraising and community events. As sports anchor and reporter for A-Channel Ottawa, Lianne is thrilled to join, once again this year, the 24h de Tremblant Ambassador team.
