Le Pentathlon des neiges : The biggest winter multi-sport event!

Quebec_en_forme_LogoQuebec, February 22nd 2013, The Quebec en Forme initiative for the English-speaking community “BE ACTIVE QUEBEC” is proud to invite you to this grand winter event.

Le Pentathlon des neiges will hold this official RSEQ tournament on February 28th on the Plains of Abraham at 10.30 am. More than 935 students will participate in the race in order to win a RSEQ banner for their school.

Please join us in cheering on 2 teams from Holland Elementary School and 4 teams from St-Patrick’s High school, as they race in their respective categories.

Claire Arseneau and Philippe Trudel are the teachers who have been responsible for the coaching and participation of their students.

BE ACTIVE QUEBEC was able to support one team from each school in order to help them reach their goals.
