So much more than an event!
Although it is mostly known for its annual event, Défi sportif AlterGo has become over the years a leader in the promotion of universal accessibility and social inclusion.
In 2010, Défi sportif AlterGo obtained its non-profit status. Ever since, it has been working all year long with youth with functional limitations and their entourage, to promote the benefits of sport and healthy living. Its services are tailored to the needs of the clientele and the priorities set by members of AlterGo and Formation AlterGo.
Its services offer changes depending on the needs of the clientele and the priorities jointly identified by AlterGo and Formation AlterGo.
Défi sportif AlterGo also organizes high-level sporting events, both at the national and international levels.
Over the years, many partners have worked with Défi sportif AlterGo as spokespersons, ambassadors or supporters. First, we must stress the invaluable support of comedian Yvon Deschamps, the spokesperson from 1984 to 1997, who still makes it a point to attend the annual event’s opening ceremony every year. We must also mention our current spokespersons, Senator Chantal Petitclerc (since 1998) and communicator Jean-Marie Lapointe (since 2002), who add to the success and the notoriety of Défi sportif AlterGo.
One must not forget the more discrete role of our financial partners, our sponsors and volunteers who strongly believe in universal accessibility and social inclusion. We thank all of the people who have joined our ranks over the years and made this beautiful human adventure possible all the while contributing to the progress of Québec society.
