Over the last 5 years, the private retirement homes managed by COGIR Real Estate have been organizing a large-scale activity that makes people move all across its network.

Bringing together more than 1,500 participants from our seniors' residences every year, La Grande Marche is a popular and anticipated activity. A major new feature has been added this year, as for its 5th Edition, each residence will sponsor a school or youth organization in its neighborhood. La Grande Marche du Savoir will take place from June 1st until July 31st, during which each residence will set up a walking club. Specially trained for the occasion, the residents will walk traveling distances adapted to their respective physical form. In order to cumulate their steps, registered residents receive a pedometer and the recreation managers of each residence takes care of submitting the total distance achieved each week.

At the end of the 8 weeks of the event, COGIR is committed to give $ 2,500 to the 3 residences that have accumulated the most steps. In addition, all sponsored schools or organizations will receive $ 500 for the purchase of school effects. All donations collected during the event will be delivered in time for the start of the school year.
