…People that I love and support
Helping advance Canadian women in sports
Chantal is one of five Canadian athletes giving her support to Fuelling Women Champions, a Dairy Farmers of Canada initiative.
The Defi Sportif
An international event, le Défi sportif, is unique in the world. It brings together elite athletes as well as up-coming Paralympic athletes. Every year, about 4,000 athletes from twenty countries gather to take part in a six-day competition in Montreal. Chantal has been involved since 1995, and has been the spokesperson since 1998. Défi sportif is organized by AlterGo, which reunites organizations working in the interests of social inclusion for disabled people, and this through leisure and sports.
Right to Play
Chantal is one of the athletes who serve as an ambassador for Right to Play, a non-governmental humanitarian organization created by athletes. Their goal is to provide disadvantaged children from all over the world the opportunity to participate in programs focused on sports and games. This organization is training coaches in more than 20 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, countries that are affected by war, poverty and disease.
