THE COGIR-DESJARDINS TEAM SPONSORS ANTOINE-GIROUARD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FOR THE GRAND DÉFI PIERRE LAVOIE
Every year, as part of the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie, each cyclist team chooses an elementary school to sponsor in order to help promote physical activity with children. This year, it is with great pride that the COGIR-DESJARDINS cyclist team will sponsor the Antoine-Girouard elementary school located in Boucherville.
Members of the cyclist team have announced their sponsorship on Friday, April 28, during an event at the school. They took this opportunity to encourage the young students to give their best efforts for GDPL’s Energy Cubes challenge. This challenge, held throughout the month of May, encourages students from all elementary schools in Quebec to be active in order to accumulate as many « energy cubes » as possible.
The cyclist team gave every Antoine-Girouard student a pedometer and a bracelet bearing team colours. These young students were very thankful for this gift and were excited to find out how much money will be raised for new sports equipment at their school!
