A donation of $ 7,500
On November 3rd, Bagotville cyclists who participated in the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie ( GDPL) this past summer presented a $ 7,500 check to the students at Fréchette School in L'Anse- Saint- Jean.
Each team of cyclists who takes part in the Grand Défi is partnered with a school and they work to raise as much money as possible to invest into promoting healthy lifestyles for the students. The Bagotville team went to L'Anse- Saint- Jean with the 3 Wing/ CFB Bagotville Commander and Chief Warrant Officer, Colonel Darcy Molstad and CWO Marc Corriveau, in order to present the students with the check. CFB Bagotville will participate in the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie again next summer. Recruitment for the base team will start soon. Those interested should keep an eye out for the ad on the base bulletin board.
