The 20th Annual Saint-Lambert Games - Presented by LSR GESDEV

The Saint-Lambert Games are born in 2002 – 20 years ago – an initiative of Dr. Volker Blank, senior cancer researcher at the Lady Davis Medical Research Centre. Dr. Blank had received his first research grant from the Cancer Research Society and wanted to give back to the organisation who had given him the first chance of his career and support the cause. With the help of his family and neighbors who all had young children, he founded The Saint-Lambert Games, a local activity open to all, encouraging physical activity while supporting cancer research.

Since their first edition, The Saint-Lambert Games have been gathering participants of all ages (3 and up) for a fun-filled day of physical activity and friendly outdoor Olympic-style competition to benefit the Society.

Last year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Games that were scheduled to take place at the beginning of June at the Parc de la Voie Maritime, pivoted to a virtual format, encouraging participants to become “Champions of Research” by choosing to partake in an activity of their choice and by raising funds in support of the cause.

The Saint Lambert Games are back for a 20th consecutive year….in a hybrid format this year!

During this most special anniversary year, since gatherings are still banned by governmental instances until further notice, the Games are inviting you to substitute the habitual sprint, long jump, throwing of the disc, rope pull and potato bag race and to uphold the tradition by participating in a personal challenge of your choice. Whether a walk, sprint, cycling circuit, burpee challenge, half marathon or other, alone, in a couple, among friends or with your family, between June 1st and 30th, in support of cancer research!

Register today to become a “Champion of Research” in support of the Cancer Research Society and to confirm your intention to accomplish your personal challenge at your own beat.

Your registration is free once again this year! – Upon registering, we invite you to make a donation in the amount of your choice to the Cancer Research Society and/or take advantage of this great activity to raise funds for the Society. Once your personal Web Page is ready share your personalized link by email and on Social Media to solicit support from friends, family and colleagues for your challenge! All donors will receive a tax receipt for any gift of $20 or more.
