Défi des cœurs

Defi des coeurs 2017 - Chantale Boucher

This 5th edition of the Defi des Coeurs will take place on September 9, 2017 to benefit the Montreal Heart Institute Foundation. Last year, nearly $20,000 where raised. Our heartfelt thanks to Chantal and all the participants. 

The bike path along the Shawinigan River serves as the backdrop for the 1, 3, 5 and 10 km races for walkers and runners.

For Chantale, running is a passion—a great way to stay active and healthy. Unfortunately, at the age of 31, a heart problem forced her to give up running; she underwent open-heart surgery eight weeks later. She is now back into running...

One of the goals of this race is to raise money for the Montreal Heart Institute Foundation in order to purchase new medical equipment, fund research projects, better plan surgical procedures, reduce waiting lists, treat more patients and improve their quality of life, promote preventive measures, and ultimately SAVE MORE LIVES.
