The Fourth Annual Valoris Foundation Christmas Elf Challenge hits the ground running in Embrun in November.
The annual run is the pre-season fundraiser for the non-profit social services agency’s annual Christmas Elf Campaign to ensure that the children of families in need in Prescott-Russell will have a present for Christmas. Last year’s Challenge in Embrun saw 159 participants, supported by 40 volunteers. Funds raised from the run helped provide more than 650 children with a gift last Christmas.
“It was a festive event where so many from the region came together to run and have a good time,” stated Gabrielle Cadieux Laflèche, Valoris Foundation spokesperson. “It was great to see so many people come together to bring smiles and magic to so many children this holiday season.”
This year’s Challenge Run is November 12, starting from the Sportsplex Dome in Embrun. Details for becoming a participant in the run, providing sponsorship support, or making a donation are at www.fondationvaloris.com.
