15 October 2023 — Breathing Challenge
Dr. Normand Blais is a hemato-oncologist, member of the thoracic oncology team at the CHUM and research member at the Montreal cancer Institute. For the past few years, Dr. Blais has decided to combine business with pleasure by organizing a race in La Fontaine Park, in collaboration with the Institute, which organizes the activity and manages the donations.
Support research in thoracic oncology
Since 2010, more than $581,000 has been donated to the thoracic oncology team and a dozen promising research projects have been conducted by Dr. Blais’ team. The objective of the event is to support the thoracic oncology program to encourage the education of the fellows and physicians in this unit while promoting research in this discipline and to allow for better international medical cooperation in this field.
2023 Breathing Challenge
The Montreal Cancer Institute is proud to announce that the 14th edition of the Défi Respire, held on October 15 at Parc La Fontaine, raised over $60,000 for the cause.
