We are happy to announce that the first “Défi des rapides de Lachine” will be held in collaboration with the Bruny Surin Foundation at Ste-Anne college, located at 50, 12th avenue in Lachine. On the program: 500m, 1000m and 2000m individual or team races. Registration fees are 20$.
Just like our club, the Bruny Surin Foundation helps kids and youth achieve academic perseverence and excellence throught sports and healthy habits. This is a natural collaboration between our organizations. The Foundation distributes over $20 000 a year in sports grants to student-athletes. Your participation to the “Défi des Rapides” will not only help our club but will benefit young Quebec athletes.
