WindSUP SLG 2022 Project

“Life is a gift. Happiness is a quest. It is achieved by making the right choices.” M.R.

Mental health problems, anxiety and suicidal thoughts are realities that challenge me a lot. After making the choices that allow me to live fully today, it is time for me to say thank you and give back.The WindSUP SLG 2022 project is the tangible result of my passion for windsurfing and my desire to help.

The project consists of a sporting challenge to raise funds for the prevention of suicidal thoughts. Relief seemed like the perfect partner after they made an in memoriam donation for a friend who unfortunately took her own life. All donations will be used to help people who suffer from anxiety. My biggest hope would be to raise enough money to allow Relief to start a new intervention program in schools.

As for the sporting challenge, it consists of rallying from the village of Saint-Laurent-de-l'Ile-d'Orléans, where I reside, to the city of Gaspé on a WindSUP (windsurf and Stand Up Paddle) for a total of 700 km on the St. Lawrence. I will make the trip autonomously, alone and without assistance. I hope to complete the trip in 14 to 17 days. It's going to be cold, it's going to hurt, it can get long, but that's nothing compared to the distress caused by anxiety. Departure will be on May 28, 2022.

A big thank you to my precious sponsors who support me in this adventure.

To my departed friends, rest in peace.
