McCarthy Tétrault Challenge
Making a Difference Together
Montréal - Toronto Relay
By Marc-André Blanchard, Chair and Chief Executive Officer, McCarthy Tétrault
This weekend, 29 lawyers from our Montreal office have challenged themselves do to something remarkable. As this is being posted, they are embarking on a 650 km relay run from Montreal to Toronto. Each participant will run approximately 90 km of the way, trading off for rest, but with little opportunity to sleep.
Over the last few months, this team has worked hard to train for this challenge. Most of the participants joined as novice runners. The relay will be difficult for them, and for all to succeed, teamwork will be critical, hence the group’s motto: nobody left behind.
Throughout the event, the stronger runners will work to encourage and push along their team mates, sometimes literally. This approach is what makes me particularly proud, because it mirrors the approach we take within our firm every day, where we lean on our individual and collective strengths to be the best we can be.
Through this challenge, our team is also raising funds in support of Pour 3 Points (P3P), a Montreal based charity that encourages children in need to stay in school. Funds raised will be directed to financing P3P’s new program designed to train sports coaches to become life coaches for the kids.

To our runners, listed below, BRAVO! We are so proud of you for undertaking such a colossal challenge. You are truly an inspiration. Good luck and be careful out there. We look forward to welcoming you in Toronto!
