BROSSARD, QC, May 26, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Surrounded by its many partners, it was with great pride and excitement that the Leucan Montérégie team announced details of its latest fundraiser, the Leucan Mighty Challenge, at Pascan Aviation.
An original concept
In the spirit of healthy competition, the participating teams must pull three different heavyweights (fire truck, farm machinery or other) one after the other as quickly as possible over a short distance. There will be something for everyone, and teams can register for the friendly event or the competitive event.
As a team, a maximum of 10 people must pull three heavyweights one after the other over a predetermined distance. The rest period between each pull will not be counted.
As a team, a maximum of 5 people must pull three heavyweights one after the other over a predetermined distance without resting. The travel time between each pull will be counted.
To take part in the event, each team must raise a minimum of $1,000 in donations in order to demonstrate their solidarity with the families of cancer-stricken children.
Fun for the whole family
Participants are invited to bring their families. Children will be able to try their hand at their own friendly challenge of attempting of pull a plane (registration on site). Food trucks, music, face painting and special entertainment will be available throughout the afternoon.
