Together towards a movement of vitality!

Once upon a time, there was a double Olympian who became a mother and a committed entrepreneur. Kathy Tremblay has given herself a mission: to motivate social change towards vitality! Here is the NPO BougeBouge

Each community has a social responsibility towards its youth. Its different spheres must unite to ensure their future. Thus, after having launched the company Équipe Altius, which promotes the integration of an active living program in the workplace, Kathy propelled the NPO BougeBouge to get communities moving and to fight against physical dropout.
