The LOBE CYCL-​ORL team: ready to roll for the cause!

July 14, 2015

LOBE CYCL-ORL roulera pour la cause

Pierre Lavoie invites all experienced and devoted cyclists to the 7th edition of the 1,000 km ride from Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean to Montreal on June 11, 12, 13, and 14.

The Grand défi Pierre Lavoie is the most important health event in Quebec. Its mission is to motivate kids to adopt healthy life habits and to raise parents’ awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle for their children’s health and, of course, for their own.

In 2015, close to 200 cycling teams, sponsoring just as many primary schools, will meet this challenge to raise money to improve sports facilities and purchase equipment to motivate kids to move.

The Lobe Cycl-ORL team

After months of intensive training and pedalling thousands of kilometres, the Lobe Cycl-ORL team members will take the starting line at La Baie to ride this extraordinary 1,000 km challenge:

Christophe Grenier, team captain and audioprosthetist, Thetford Mines

Simon Darveau, ENT specialist, Drummondville

Frédéric Hélie, ENT specialist, St-Jérôme and Boisbriand

Serge Principe, CPA auditor, associate CA at Mazars

Pierre Lacroix, substitute and designated driver for the team

Each of our five courageous cyclists will ride between 350 and 500 km during this four-day journey!

Sponsored school

Once again, the Lobe Cycl-ORL team will be sponsoring École oraliste de Québec pour enfants malentendants ou sourds. In 2014, the team proudly handed the school a cheque for $15,000. The goal for this year is to match or exceed this sum, nothing less!
