Quebec follows the lead

The 7th edition of La Grande marche will take place on October 15, 16 and 17, 2021 in 90 cities and municipalities in Quebec. Thousands of people will walk for healthy lifestyles during free events that bring people together and are accessible to all. A hybrid format is proposed this year allowing people to walk at one of the organized events or to participate from home. Our goal is to reach as many Quebecers as possible and we are counting on you to help us achieve this.
