Pierre Lavoie was on site in Quebec City for the launch of the 10th annual Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie, a provincewide movement to promote physical activity and healthier lifestyles.

On Oct. 20, Quebecers woke up to a rainy, windy morning, not ideal weather for a walk. That didn’t stop over 150,000 people of all ages and abilities from taking to the streets of 75 cities and towns across the province for the 10th annual Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie.
