About the Grande marche

For this 9th edition, the Fédération des médecins omnipraticiens du Québec (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.

La 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.


About the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie

The primary objective of the Grand défi is to create a culture of preventive health in Quebec by encouraging people to adopt healthy lifestyle habits. The Grand défi Pierre Lavoie mobilizes people of all ages, in Quebec and beyond. To this end, various major events are organized each year to bring about a lasting change in the population: La Tournée des écoles, La Tournée mini-cube, Force 4, La Petite Expé, Le défi des Cubes énergie, La Course, Le 1000 KM, La Boucle et La Grande marche
