Quebec follows the lead

For this 8th edition, the FMOQ and the Grand défi are once again joining forces to raise awareness among Quebecers about healthy lifestyle habits. Since physical activity is an effective treatment to prevent a large number of diseases, La Grande marche is an event prescribed by family doctors.

The Grande marche is a free activity open to all. At the same time, the event will be held in more than 100 cities across Quebec, including Saguenay, Quebec City and Montreal, and offers 5 km walking routes to highlight the importance of healthy lifestyle habits.

Walkers can also do it at their own pace and at their preferred time during these 3 days by participating virtually, from home.
