Nick De Santis will participate in the Fight Hunger: Walk the World event during the Grand Prix

The Canadian Grand Prix will open its doors to a humanitarian cause, allowing numerous celebrities to walk symbolically along the Gilles Villeneuve circuit for 15 minutes. No less than 276 marches are organized simultaneously across 86 countries. The walk on Ile Notre-Dame is organized by the “Club des petits déjeuners du Québec.”

“I am very proud to be a part of this event,” declared De Santis. “I think it’s very important to support the Club des petits déjeuners, which provides kids throughout the province with a proper breakfast every morning.”

The Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports, Jean-Marc Fournier, the Mayor of Montreal, Gérald Tremblay, the president and chief executive officer of the Canadian Grand Prix, Normand Legault, as well as the founding president of the “Club des petits déjeuners du Québec”, Daniel Germain, will notably participate in the event, as well as celebrities from the sports and entertainment scene.

Organized by the World Food Program (WFP), Fight Hunger: Walk the World is a world-wide event that aims to expose the problem of child hunger and raise funds.

In Quebec, the United Nations joined forces with the Club des petits déjeuners to organize the event. The Club des petits déjeuners” serves breakfast to more than 13,000 children in 183 schools every morning. The WFP feeds 15 million children around the world through food programs in school.
