A second successful feat for Christian Vachon
On Saturday, Christian Vachon, founder of the Relais du lac Memphrémagog, achieved the feat of running the 125 km around Lake Memphrémagog solo for the second time. If in 2006, he was alone on the course, more than 200 teams took turns to accompany him in what has become a popular challenge and appreciated by racing fans.
The Relais du lac Memphrémagog formula is gaining in popularity year after year, and the 8th edition has added more than $300,000 to the coffers of the foundation, whose mission is to help young people struggling with financial difficulties and thus support them in their academic success.
Estrie Plus.com was there to meet the participants and Christian Vachon, following his race.
