GERALD MCSHANE MOVES WITH THE MAYOR

MONTREAL, MAY 23, 2013 Gilles Deguire, the Mayor of Montreal North was on hand recently at Gerald McShane to participate in “Lève-toi et bouge/Get up and move,” an event which brought the community together to raise awareness to the importance of physical activity.

Organized in collaboration with the school’s Community Learning Centre and its partners, families from around the community packed the schoolyard for activities ranging from cycling, walking, Zumba and air bouncing.

The event also helped the community get closer to their goal of raising 500,000 “Energy Cubes” for the Défi Pierre Lavoie. Each 15-minute set of exercise is equivalent to one “Energy Cube”
