Tens of thousands of Quebecers joined Pierre Lavoie in the Grande Marche in one of the 101 walks that took place across the province from Oct. 18 to 20.

Since 1999, the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie has been encouraging people of all ages to “get up and move,” for the sake of their health. Pierre Lavoie is an amateur Ironman athlete who takes his message to schools to emphasize to children the importance of exercise and eating well.
