EVEREST CHALLENGE: A DOUBLE MISSION
ENCOURAGE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY – PROMOTE SOCIAL COMMITMENT
The Everest Challenge is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving and maintaining a good physical condition and helping others through mutual aid and generosity. The event, created by Yvan L’Heureux, has been a success since its first edition in 2013 at the côte St-Pierre in Rivière-du-Loup. Today, other cities in Quebec host this flagship event. Since the beginning, more than 6,000 climbers from 3 to 85 years old, about 50% of whom were sedentary before, have climbed the côte St-Pierre. The challenge supports 230 organizations throughout Quebec, including the ALS Society of Quebec and $ 750,000 in benefits for the communities.
The challenge encourages the improvement and maintenance of a good physical health by walking in ascending and descending elevations. This practice is accessible to all and achievable at a lower cost. As a result, the public is made aware of the importance of a healthy and balanced lifestyle while supporting the community. Its efforts will be directed to supporting sports, school, community and cultural organizations.
