10 km run in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaure on the beautiful course of the Chemin du Roy. Main goal of the 10 km: run up the notorious Gagnon hill as fast as possible! The best climber will win the honors! Visit the Course section to find out about the total altitude difference.
The profits generated by the event will be donated directly to the "Les Petits Frères" (Little Brothers) organization for the maintenance of the Old Friends’ cottage in Lac St-Joseph and to provide more support for the lonely elderly.
About the organization
“Les Petits Frères” (The Little Brothers)
This organization’s mission is to provide a friendly and affectionate presence to the elderly that are isolated, emotionally deprived and without family support, and to do so for the rest of their lives. The Little Brothers combat the exclusion and loneliness of elderly people of over 75 living along by welcoming them and creating for them a family for life. They provide their Old Friends, whom they accompany in a personal and individual relationship, with the affection that any human being needs, the safety and reassurance that their state of vulnerability requires as well as the moral support to which they are rightfully entitled.
Give wings to your commitment and to your energy! Create your own personal crowd-fundraising page and enable the members of your circle - family, friends, colleagues – to combine their support to yours and contribute to Les Petits Frѐres' work. Encourage them to support your participation by making a donation. Your efforts, before and during the race, will increase the opportunities for our dear “Old Friends” to be accompanied and to live unique moments, surrounded by devoted volunteers! Participants that will have raised the most funds will be rewarded for their performance. The funds that are raised are as many smiles for our elders’ faces!
Thank you to all the participants and sponsors of the 2013 who allowed us to gather $101,223 for the Little Brothers!
