Marie-Soleil, captain of the Pivots de Charles-Bruneau ski team for the past seven years, has a great story to tell. From sponsored child to energized participant: meet Marie-Soleil Quesnel! Since she was treated at the Centre de Cancérologie Charles-Bruneau for a brain tumour, has decided to pay it forward by getting actively involved with Tremblant’s 24h.

The Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau, which she calls “my second home,” has been instrumental in her journey. Though Marie-Soleil has been in good health for several years, she drops by the centre from time to time to visit with her “second family,” who are always happy to see her and find out how she’s doing.

We went to the Centre de cancérologie with Marie-Soleil a few weeks ago to learn more about the young lady who decided to make children’s causes a priority in her life and how she keeps things interesting in terms of fundraising.
