The fourth edition of the annual Défi Course à la vie was held on Thursday, September 4 in Odanak. More than 100 people attended the event and nearly $1,800 was raised and given to Innu Meshkenu and the Fondation prévention suicide les Deux Rives. We would kindly like to thank all the participants. It’s always a pleasure to see so many people in the community hit the streets.
Around thirty children ran the 1km event and earned their precious medals. The real challenge is not measured with a stopwatch, but rather to participate, to push through and finish. A common feeling of pride resides in all walkers and runners at the end of a race. For us, it is the feeling of accomplishment. Join us again next year for a special fifth anniversary edition!
