We are proud to be giving back to the community!


The Coureurs des bois Challenge is proud to support community organizations that are developing a project that promotes physical activity and healthy eating, environmental preservation, and / or the discovery of the rich cultural and natural heritage of the region.

Following the success of its last edition, the Challenge is pleased to be able to hand over nearly $20,000 this year.

Not-for-profit organizations wishing to receive a donation for a project to be held before April 30, 2020 that is related to the objectives of the Challenge and must complete the donation request available on this page. The deadline to submit an application is April 21, 2019.

In 2018, the Challenge distributed more than $ 10,000 in the region. The Clarence-Rockland 64th Francophone Scout Cluster, the Prescott-Russell Autism Cluster, the 2nd Rockland Guides and Pathfinders, the Tucker House Renewal Center, the Sitelles Gymnastics Club and the Clarence Creek Optimist Club in partnership with Ste-Félicité School have all benefited of its support.

We would like to warmly thank our sponsors, all the participants and our many volunteers who made this possible!
