QSB was well represented at the recent Quest for a Cure adventure race in Montebello, Quebec. Five teams of three, comprised of participants from Queen’s full time MBA, executive MBA Ottawa and QSB staff members, participated in the 8 hour, 35 kilometer challenge in support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. All five teams crossed the finish line in fine form with huge smiles and a great sense of accomplishment.

The race consisted of several stages including biking, fire building, swimming, canoeing and orienteering. Teams crossed rivers on foot, waded through muddy swamps and crawled up mountains in order to get to the necessary check points. They were challenged physically, mentally and emotionally on this tough course and that required team work to be successful. The five teams raised over $2,000 for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
