Scotiabank Charity Challenge – Portrait of Maryse Tremblay

A person can decide to sign up for the Scotiabank Charity Challenge for many reasons: to get in shape, take on a personal challenge, or test their limits.

For Maryse Tremblay, an intensive care nurse at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, the Challenge was a great opportunity to run for her hospital and, at the same time, to improve care for cancer patients. No small challenge for a nurse on the night shift!

So, what does a training program look like when you work an odd schedule? Maryse explains: “My program is one of a kind! I work nights, so it’s designed around my sleep schedule. I divide my sleep time between the morning and the evening, so I can train between 2 and 4 p.m. I often combine running, anywhere from one to ten kilometres inside or outside, with weight training, at least three times a week.” No doubt about it, Maryse is super disciplined, and it’s that discipline that will propel her over the finish line for the first time on April 22, during the Scotiabank Charity Challenge.

On behalf of all the patients at HMR and the team at the Foundation, thank you!
