11 proud representatives of Promutuel Insurance Rive-Sud took part in Défi Everest in Rivière-du-Loup on September 17. The money the team raised was donated to an organization we’re proud to support, Association du trouble primaire du langage de l'Est. To complete the challenge, teams of 3 to 15 people ascended the notoriously steep Côte Saint-Pierre 150 times. The length of the road multiplied by 150 is 8,848 metres—the height of Mount Everest.
The event raises awareness about the importance of physical activity and raises money for organizations that help young people. In four years, the event has raised over $500,000 for 132 organizations.
