”I know Claude Fortin well. He’s a source of courage for many. By taking up his challenge, I wanted to pay tribute to the man and the athlete he once was. Since I already did the Ice Bucket Challenge several months ago, I wanted to respond to Claude’s challenge in a way that resembles me. In Saguenay, the water is also just as cold!
And now, other Quebecers can, in turn, take-up their own sports challenge. We know more about ALS thanks to the Ice Bucket Challenge. If we can undertake together other challenges in the following days and weeks or months, our efforts won’t fade into oblivion. We need to help further research that will find a treatment and support families affected by this horrible disease.”
