For a third consecutive year, close to 80 Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton employees and partners from the Québec-Chaudière-Appalaches, Mauricie and Nicolet regions took part in the Défi Entreprises challenge held in Trois-Rivières (June 4) and Québec City (June 11).
For six years, more than 500 businesses and 40,000 workers have gotten together to improve their physical and mental health. “At our firm, it’s been a tradition for the past three years. At RCGT, we believe in the importance of healthy lifestyle habits and I’m proud to say that more and more employees and partners from the region have been joining this event. Employees even travelled from Beauce and Thetford to take up the challenge in Québec City. It’s remarkable to see the interest and importance our team has in physical activity!” said Mario Morin, Regional Vice-President, who participated in the 10K race.
