The first edition of the Coupe Charles-Bruneau in Quebec City was a lot of fun on Saturday, May 25. Organized by the Charles-Bruneau Foundation and presented by IGA, the ball field hockey tournament featured 17 teams and over 200 players. Inspired by Charles Bruneau's great passion for field hockey, the Coupe Charles-Bruneau raised a net $200,000 to give all children with cancer in Quebec the best possible chance of recovery. The event, held at ExpoCité on Place Jean-Béliveau, also brought together a number of public figures, including Pierre Bruneau, Simon Gagné, Hugo Giroux, Alain Côté, Steven Finn, Steve Penney, Isabelle Éthier, Simon Pigeon, Anthony Therrien, Karl Walcott and Antoine Pilon.


Quebec City, a major hub for the Fondation Charles-Bruneau

Involved for many years in the Quebec City region, in 2018 the Fondation Charles-Bruneau inaugurated the new Charles-Bruneau Pediatric Hemato-Oncology Unit at the Centre mère-enfant Soleil of the CHU de Québec-Université Laval to offer quality care to all children in the Capitale-Nationale and surrounding regions. Each year, nearly 4,000 visits are made to the Unit, and around 75 new cases are diagnosed. In all, more than 800 local children are currently being treated for cancer. Thanks to its involvement, the Fondation Charles-Bruneau has a considerable impact on the chances of recovery for children with cancer.


In Quebec, 40% of children diagnosed with cancer receive treatment in the Capitale-Nationale region. To reiterate its presence in the region, the Fondation Charles-Bruneau is proud to announce that a second edition of the Charles-Bruneau Cup will be held in Quebec City in May 2025!


Our young Heroes of Quebec

For this first edition of the Coupe Charles-Bruneau in Quebec City, three young heroes from the Old Capital joined the Coupe Charles-Bruneau participants. They are Aidan (5 years old), Miro (4 years old) and Zachary (3 years old), three cheerful and endearing young boys who are undergoing or have undergone treatment at the Charles-Bruneau Pediatric Hemato-Oncology Unit at the CHU de Québec-Université Laval.
