"National Bank employees constantly strive to have a positive
impact on the lives of people around them. In addition to taking on a
physical challenge as part of the Grand Tour, they've raised funds to
support important local causes. I'd like to thank them for their
determination, their inspiring commitment to the community and their
dedication to continuing the NB Grand Tour tradition—mile after
mile," said Lucie Blanchet, Honorary Chair of the NB Grand Tour
and Executive Vice-President – Personal Banking and Client Experience
at National Bank.
"We're proud of our long-standing partnership with National
Bank to help young people. Thanks to the NB Grand Tour and its

preventing psychological distress in young people," said
