La Coop fédérée team concluded last weekend the tenth edition of the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie. We are proud to announce that we fundraised a total amount of $25 945. This sum is part of the total amount of donations gathered by the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie, which is over 2 million dollars.
‘’To succeed the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie, it takes the will to surpass one’s self, endurance and especially team spirit. This is a long race and it can be physically and mentally grueling. The moment team spirit was going to waver, the idea of helping the children of École Plein-Soleil gave us the motivation to go beyond our limits’’, mentioned Martin Juneau, captain of the La Coop fédérée team for a second year and also VP Finance for Groupe BMR.
$ 11 000 will be given the Pierre Lavoie Foundation and nearly $ 15 000 will go to École Plein-Soleil. This school committed itself to promote healthy habits and the importance of physical activity for young students.
