Our Vision

To provide a better and healthier future for underprivileged children throughout Quebec.

Our Mission

By uniting the members of the great Canadiens family and by teaming up with the community, we encourage physical activity and the adoption of a healthy lifestyle among underprivileged youth from 4 to 17 years old.
