On Friday, October 5, was held the official cheque presentation following all fundraising activities held for the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie 2018. The COGIR-DESJARDINS Cyclist Team including Mr. Frédéric Soucy, President, Cogir Management Corporation, Mr. Jean-Philippe Hébert, Vice-President, Developement & Project management, Cogir Real estate, and Mr. Christian Pouliot from Desjardins Wealth Management, were on site for this event, along with Ms. Isabelle Bleau, alternate mayor for the City of Boucherville and Mr. Patrice Filiatrault, Principal of Paul VI elementary school. A significant amount was given as a donation to this Boucherville elementary school in order to promote physical activity in children.

For the last 5 years, the COGIR-DESJARDINS cyclist team has been taking part in the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie with the objective of raising funds for an elementary school. After raising funds for the De Montarville, Mount Bruno & Antoine-Girouard schools, the team chose the Paul VI school to benefit from their donation. Community involvement is something that the COGIR-DESJARDINS team members are passionate about – this is why they are extremely proud to give a grand total of $9700 to Boucherville elementary school pupils. This donation will be used to purchase of pedal sets for the desks, which will help students increase their focus and attention in class.
