On September 10 to 12, 2021

let's paddle together
towards a childhood without cancer!


The Circuit bleu Charles-Bruneau is a one-of-a-kind fundraising event. Alone or as part a team, participants enjoy a unique sporting experience with a human touch.

Kayakers, canoeists and paddleboarders are offered accessible guided treks that let them rediscover the Island of Montreal and its surroundings.

Spend a day or more on the water, surpass your limits, and inspire hope!

Always trying to raise the bar

Thanks to our participants and partners, the Circuit bleu, since its inception, has remitted close to $1 million in support of research in the area of pediatric hematology and oncology.

The event’s revamped 2020 edition raised the incredible sum of $220,000. 

For the sake of our children, let’s be bold and set our sights on new records in 2021!
