Family Color Run for a Good Cause!

Course en couleur

Last Sunday, August 26, 2018, the 1st Edition of the Limoges Family Color Run was held, as part of Boboul Family Day, bringing together 110 runners and walkers of all ages. The event, organized by the Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie (CSCE), raised $1034.33, which will be handed over to the Limoges Citizens Committee in order to support community projects.

Limoges Family Color Run: A great event for all ages!

At 2 p.m., with the sun shining, participants both young and old were all smiles at the start line for the 2.6 km course. Volunteers were stationed at several points along the route, waiting to spray passing walkers and runners with colorful powder. At the finish line, the look of pride on the participants’ faces was overwhelming, since many were running for the first time.

Thanks

The event, launched by Audrey Beauséjour, Kinesiologist and Health Promoter at the CSCE in Limoges, owes much of its great success to the collaboration of volunteers and sponsors: Casselman Canadian Tire, Coureur des bois Challenge, Embrun Creation Decor, Embrun Independant Coop, Nérée Lavictoire Roofing, students from Rockland École secondaire catholique L’Escale, students from Limoges École élémentaire catholique Saint-Viateur and many volunteers from the community. The CSCE sincerely thanks all these partners for their generous participation.

Boboul Family Day

In addition to this event, Boboul Family Day allowed families to enjoy all types of activities including live music by Sweet Gang Joes and The Urban Misfits, inflatable structures, carnival games, face painting, vendor booths, food and draws.
