SSQ Insurance : title sponsor of the 2019 SSQ Insurance Quebec City Marathon

SSQ Insurance is proud to be associated with the 22nd edition of the SSQ Insurance Quebec City Marathon. As title sponsor of this exciting sporting event for the past 14 years, SSQ Insurance continues to insist on the importance of physical activity and healthy lifestyle habits.

This year, more than 300 SSQ Insurance employees and their families will continue the tradition of representing the company by taking part in the various events over the weekend. “This massive participation is a tangible demonstration of how important health and self-motivation are in our corporate culture.  Our employees will join thousands of runners and walkers who, like us at SSQ Insurance, are committed to adopting an active lifestyle,” said Jean-François Chalifoux, CEO of SSQ Insurance.

The SSQ Insurance Quebec City Marathon is also an opportunity for the company to give back to the communities that make us. In addition to meeting their personal challenge, our employees will be running in support of Motivaction Jeunesse, the cause associated with the event. SSQ Insurance will donate $2 to the organization for every kilometer clocked by its employees and family members in support of solidarity and social involvement, values that are very important to SSQ Insurance.

And it is this community spirit that brings more than 200 employees to cheer on marathon runners as they pass the last refreshment stand in front of the SSQ Insurance headquarters. This will be the perfect occasion for runners to stock up on positive energy as they head for the final stretch of their event. 

SSQ Insurance wanted to make this experience equally enjoyable for all participants and those who’ve come to cheer them on. On Saturday and Sunday, everyone is invited to the SSQ Insurance After Race at Place George-V, a place to relax, stretch out tired muscles and enjoy a comforting beverage.
