On Wednesday, the 4th edition of the BRP-Cascades golf tournament took place to benefit the Fondation du CHUS. Once again this year, it was a record-setting event, with proceeds totalling $1,903,378. It is the largest event to be held in benefit of the Fondation.

 

Because we know that our health depends on keeping the planet healthy, Cascades, in addition to providing the event with financial support, decided to green things up and make the event an eco-friendly one. The measures were verified by the Conseil québécois des événements écoresponsables, and earned a Level-2 rating according to standards set by the Bureau de normalisation du Québec.

 

GREEN MEASURES:

 

A new initiative this year: we asked several passersby to contribute to expanding Cascades’ initiatives by promising to adopt new daily habits that will help green up the planet. Here is what Mario P., Mario L., Pierre, Micheline, Johnny, Robert, Stéphan, Jean-Yves, Philippe-Hugo, José and Alain said. Thank you for being good sports and playing the game!

 

 

Finally, our environmental expert Jean-Sébastien Busque had fun presenting the green initiatives implemented at the tournament in his segment “Top chrono 2:30.” Here’s the result!
