Why should you donate to the Bonneville 808 Challenge?

Discipline, hard work and dedication are the qualities that so often make student-athletes an inspiration to their peers and to the younger generation. Donating to the Bonneville 808 Challenge means helping to ensure that these promising athletes, our future leaders, get the financial and material resources and the support they need to continue their careers in sports while maintaining academic excellence. This support comes in the form of individual scholarships from the Fondation de l’athlète d’excellence du Québec (FAEQ).

The FAEQ steps into its support role very early on in the careers of student-athletes – from the moment their talent emerges to their post-career choices. In cooperation with sports federations and the sport faculties of Québec universities, the foundation acts as a springboard and source of reliable assistance to student-athlete scholarship recipients who are on the road to excellence.
