The second edition of the Défi Desjardins Challenge (Walk-Run) takes place on Saturday, September 14 at Confederation Park in Hawkesbury (at the foot of the Long Sault Bridge.)
The Desjardins Challenge is hosted by the staff of the Caisse Desjardins of Hawkesbury Ltd. People of all ages can participate in a walk or a run of either 5k or 10k, while supporting charities in the area. This year, the funds raised by the Desjardins Challenge will be donated to Valoris Foundation of Prescott-Russell, which brings support to underprivileged and vulnerable children, teenagers and adults in the United Counties of Prescott and Russell.
The Desjardins crew will arrive at 8 a.m. on Challenge day, and at 9:30 a.m., there will be a warm-up for walkers and runners at the main stage. The walk/run begins at 10 a.m. At 12 noon, there will be music and prizes for participants.
