“It is with great pleasure that I have agreed to be Honorary President for the 1st edition of the DEFI GARNEAU-QUEBECOR 10K, because I’ve always believed in the benefits of daily exercise and a healthy lifestyle to realize our full potential and, most of all, to live healthy.

So sign up! Next August 10, we’re keeping a number for you, and let’s run together for the cause!” declared Mrs. Bernier.
