The Challenge is proud to support the community!

The mission of the Coureurs des bois Challenge is to organize a unifying activity promoting a healthy and active lifestyle as well as cultural and natural heritage in order to raise funds to support organizations in the region.

The Coureurs des bois Challenge therefore supports projects that have the following objectives:

  • promote physical activity and healthy eating,
  • put forward the preservation of the environment, and or
  • discover the rich cultural and natural heritage of the region.

Before completing the donation request form, make sure that:

  • you are a non-profit organization,
  • your head office is in Prescott-Russell,
  • your activity serves the population of Prescott-Russell,
  • your activity reaches more than one person,
  • your activity is related to the objectives of the Coureurs des bois Challenge, and that
  • your activity will take place before May 31, 2025.

Organizations and programs not eligible for Coureurs des bois Challenge donations:

  • Programs relating to the regular activities of groups of a religious, political, school or institutional, hospital nature, such as school committees, pastoral councils, beneficiary committees, etc.

Submitting an online request, even if it meets all the criteria, does not guarantee that your organization will receive a donation. We wish we could help every organization, but it’s just not possible.

The deadline to submit an application is April 15, 2024. Organizations that submitted an application will receive a response by June 1, 2024.

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