With the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie new genre, Quebecers will attempt, from 19 to 21 June, to activate over a million kilometers in running, walking, swimming or cycling.
Due to the pandemic of sars coronavirus, the GDPL has been redesigned and it is so virtual that will be the challenge “1 000 000 KM Together.”
“You get out of the containment, in the last few weeks, and there are those who have not had the chance to do physical activity, pointed out Sébastien Benoit, one of the spokespersons of the event, Saturday, during the emission Salut Bonjour Weekend on TVA. It should certainly not that our health remains in containment. Pierre Lavoie the repeats and the said, the COVID-19 is still there, it lurks always around, (but) the best way to protect yourself is to stay healthy. Running, walking, pedaling, it does good to our body.”
And to achieve this goal, every mile matters.
“Go there at your own pace, launched Benoit. Do not turn crazy this week-end there. You only have to walk, take it slowly. It is a little like a telethon. Give a$ 1, give$ 5 to give 10$, made 1 km, 5 km, 10 km, every mile will count. And I hope that Sunday, we will all be able to say together, Quebecers, we have reached 1 million miles.”
