Challenge yourself to give
research the place
it deserves

The IRCM Challenge is an annual gathering where parents, friends, and colleagues come together to support research through a fun athletic challenge. It’s a unique opportunity to compete against yourself for the cause and invite your community to get involved with you. The Challenge normally takes place on the magnificent Mount Royal, which is entirely secured for the occasion. During the pandemic, it will take place virtually. Experienced runners, amateurs, and children alike take a stand to support research.
