In the framework of its participation to the Défi Pierre Lavoie (a 1000 km bike ride to promote a healthy lifestyle for young people), Essilor Canada sponsors, for the third year, Saint-François school in Ste-Foy with the objective of bringing all the students to the great party that will close the Grand Défi next June.
On September 26, 2012, employees from Essilor, namely : Jean-François Lacasse, Arnaud Rajchenbach, Michel Simard, Chantal Tremblay and Nancy Wilson organized a full day of activities for the students. Three themes were showcased: healthy active lifestyle, team work and healthy eating habits. The sixty or so participants had to take part in a physical challenge, a group challenge and answer a written quiz on healthy eating habits.
They showed great enthusiasm and had fun competing and sharing with the Essilor team.
This year again, in collaboration with Les Laboratoires Blanchard and Cooper Vision, a $5 000 donation will be made to Psychopedagogical Centre’s Foundation.
