Participants in the 21 or 5 kilometers races on April 26th at Ile-Ste-Hélène had until May 8th to raise funds. And they excelled both on the trail and in the challenge.

This amount represents valuable grants so that more children can enjoy a stay at Camp Carowanis next Summer. These donations help in providing support, advice and services to families of children with diabetes.

Congratulations to Jessika Chapados, mother of a little girl with diabetes, who raised $ 1,685 and earns the prize given to the top fundraiser: an overnight stay for two at the Hilton Quebec including breakfast, a Roots watch and a bottle of apple eau-de-vie. Bravo!
