The ATAXIA CHALLENGE will take place on Saturday, August 19, 2017 in Chambly, at the Parc des Ateliers in collaboration with Parks Canada.
On the menu this year, several novelties and surprises!
For the second consecutive year, we have the chance to have the comedian and animator Pierre Brassard as spokesperson for our Ataxia Challenge, which this year combines biking and walking!
In addition, our loyal partners will be at our side this year to ensure our safety, as well as an outstanding technical support for cyclists (Quilicot, the Fédération québécoise des cyclistes and the Club cycliste de Chambly). Thanks also to the ADN du Vélo for the promotion and visibility of our cycling event on their website (www.adnduvelo.com).
The atmosphere will also be very festive throughout the day, as Rythme FM and guests-surprises will be present!
Beyond the sporting challenge and the festive aspect, the most important thing for us is that you know how much your participation makes a difference. All the profits from this activity are used directly to finance the research of Dr. Jacques P. Tremblay who, with your support and his team, will be able to cure Friedreich’s disease via gene therapy. We can turn hope into reality!
The Ataxia Challenge is an opportunity to do your part. Because moving together is to advance research together!
Bike: The registration price ranges from $75 to $100 (a certain percentage will be tax deductible).
