Participation of Port of Saguenay in the Défi Kayak Desgagnés 2017

September 1st, 2017

The Port of Saguenay is proud to have participated in the 3rd edition of the Défi Kayak Desgagnés which took place from August 10th to 13th. The purpose of the event was to raise money for the Jeunes musiciens du monde organization, which helps young people from high-risk environments by offering free diversified music workshops adapted to the different needs of their environment.


The challenge is to navigate the St. Lawrence River by sea kayak between Montreal and Quebec in four days. It was a great experience for surpassing oneself, perseverance and solidarity.


As a sponsor and participant, the Port of Saguenay would like to extend its warmest thanks to the organizers, partners, volunteers and other participants for the experience and the work accomplished to support the Jeunes musiciens du monde in its involvement with young people.
