During the past year, 11 students from Concordia’s Institute for Co-operative Education (ICE) planned and organized the “Championnat des Amériques” - a highly successful five-day equestrian event which drew 35,000 visitors to Bromont to raise funds for children’s medical research. Last week, the event organizers presented Christine Webb, ICE Director with a cheque for $25,000 in appreciation of the students’ efforts. The money will go towards establishing scholarships for co-op students.
