Members of the organizing committee proudly hold the big cheque for $25,495 which they raised during the Walk. They are: Marc Osborne (front), who gave the countdown to start the walk, Marie-Claude Girard, Annie Paquet, Manon Cloutier, Dre Anne-Laure Chetaille, Yves Genest, Caroline Simard (honorary president) and Martine Pouliot. Loraine Dumas was absent from the photo.

Enthusiasm was in the air on a beautiful sunny, Sunday morning at the Parc de la Pointe-aux-Lièvres. Some 250 people were gathered around the big tent to register or check in for the annual Walk to Fight Arthritis (Marche contre la douleur) organized by the Quebec City branch of the Arthritis Society.
