The Montréal section of the Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) is proud to announce the second edition of the challenge Défi Fous Alpin that will take place at its Keene property, in the Adirondacks. The Défi Fous Alpin is an event to raise funds for Rando Québec. The challenge is to have small groups of maximum 15 people to summit simultaneously as many mountains as possible in the Adirondacks on June 17, 2017.

During the event, we will make hikes of different difficulty levels to help reach more people and promote the recreational and discovery component of hiking.

Each participant will have to make a donation to support the Jeunes en sentiers Program implemented by Rando Québec. The Jeunes en sentiers Program aims to fight sedentary behaviour and lack of nature among young persons. The funds raised will be used to support youth initiatives related to hiking. Most particularly, Rando Québec wants to encourage schools, teachers, and all other youth organizations by providing them means to introduce hiking to the youths. Therefore, the funds will be used to finance outdoor outings: help with bus transportation, access fees to trails or other fees related to the outings.

Our objective for donations is $ 15,000. You can make your donation online for Rando Québec at the following address: http://randoquebec.ca/defifousalpins/formulaire.html
