    8th annual Familiprix Défi - Vélo Bike Challenge draws 55 cyclists

    Tuesday, August 26, 2014

    $80,206 raised for Opération Enfant Soleil

    Strong winds buffeted the 55 participants as they pedaled 100 or 200 km along Quebec roads on Friday August 22, raising funds for sick kids sponsored by Opération Enfant Soleil.

    Familiprix is proud of its trio of ambassadors, owner pharmacists Jean-Luc Trottier, Régis Tremblay, and Gérald Cloutier, who for an 8th consecutive year have given freely of their time and effort to expertly organize this wonderful challenge for cyclists. Over 8 years the event has raised a tidy $591,760—every penny of which goes straight to Enfant Soleil.

    Our thanks and congratulations to the organizers, participants, business community partners, volunteers, and sponsors who contributed to the event’s success. See you next year!
