The Fondation Armand-Frappier is launching the first edition of its new autumn event Le Parcours champêtre (Country trail), which will be held in the heart of the Cité de la Biotech de Laval, on the campus of the Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie Research Center .


Objective of the Parcours champêtre :

The Parcours champêtre will raise scholarship funds for 1st cycle internships, for the Apprentis chercheurs  program of the Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie Research Center, as well as for the development of the core mission of the Fondation Armand-Frappier. A portion of the funds will also be donated to the Congrès Armand-Frappier, as a recognition of their continued volunteer commitment.

Why participate?

This hybrid race (5km, 2.5km) will mainly bring together the employees of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies located in La Cité de la Biotech de Laval, as well as their families, in a spirit of camaraderie and team-building. Le Parcours champêtre will also offer exceptional visibility and networking opportunities to the sponsors present on the site.

How to participate?

Companies that register for the event will be able to invite a set number of employees and their family members according to their sponsorship level.

Registration for the Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie Research Centre’s  professors, employees and students  is graciously offered by the Foundation! Members of your family can also participate, at the indicated fees in the registration form. To ensure your place at the event, it is mandatory to register.
