On October 1, 35 members of the Chisasibi Sports and Recreation Association undertook a major challenge – participating in a long-distance walk-a-thon.

The walk began in Rouyn-Noranda and is scheduled to make stops in Val d’Or, Amos, Matagami, and Radisson, before reaching their final destination of Chisasibi October 25.

When all is said and done, these ambitious folk will have traveled a total of 1,155 kilometres! The walk is taking place to raise money for a new sports complex for the community of Chisasibi.
