Le Grand Défi, is a unique sporting event that takes place every year in the province of Québec, bringing together children, adults, schools and all sorts of organizations to promote health and physical activity.

Last year XACT was approached by one of the staff of a secondary school from Montreal taking part in the Grand Défi, looking for support for their students preparing and for the Big Challenge itself. These kids were going to need feeding if tey were going to be up and running for 30 hours!

Eric Alvarez’s enthusiasm was contagious; before I knew it I found myself enthusiastically agreeing to donate FRUIT2 bars to sustain the students and staff through day and night, as the Grand Défi runs. , as a relay, from Montreal to Quebec City.

The music was playing, the sun shining and kids in sweat pants and tuques were milling around impatiently waiting for the event to get under way.
