Coureurs des bois challenge launched for 2018

The Coureurs des bois Challenge has recently launched its next edition, to be held on September 22, 2018 in the Lavigne Natural Park in Bourget, Ontario.

Dignitaries Francis Drouin, MP, Guy Desjardins, Mayor of Clarence-Rockland, and Nicholas Fournier of the Fournier Denturology Clinic, partner of the Challenge, all gave their unconditional support to this project and acknowledged its importance in the community. Chantal Lalonde, President of the Challenge, presented the new aspects of the 2018 edition, including the redesigned courses and the growing number of obstacles that will please participants.

“The Challenge is much more than an obstacle course. It’s an opportunity to get together and enjoy the outdoors while highlighting one of our most beautiful natural parks. It’s also an opportunity to attract people from outside and help them discover our beautiful region,” says Chantal Lalonde. “Plus, it’s the perfect opportunity to set personal goals and to challenge yourself,” she adds.

The Défi Coureurs des bois Challenge was able to donate to the following organizations, which shared an amount of $8,000:
• Regroupement autisme Prescott-Russell de la SFOA
• 2nd Rockland Guides and Pathnders
• Tucker House Renewal Centre
• Club de gymnastique Les Sitelles
• Club Optimiste de Clarence Creek in partnership with Ste-Félicité school

The Challenge also thanked the many volunteers for their dedication and commitment to this activity that contributes to the vitality of their Coureurs des bois challenge community.
