Véronique Boucher, a member of Canada’s National Para-Rowing Team, will compete in the Paralympics in Rio in September 2016. This 19-year-old is shining with determination and perseverance. At the age of 14, she is involved in a mountain bike accident that costs her three fingers of her left hand. During her recovery, Veronique decided that her amputation was not going to stop her and that she was going to pursue new dreams. Four years later, she discovered adaptive rowing and was offered a short time later to continue her training in Victoria, British Columbia. In less than a year, she joined the Canadian team and earned a bronze medal at the World Championships in France. His team then qualifies for the Paralympic Games in Rio in the summer of 2016. “My dedication to this sport has taught me to be disciplined and motivated while keeping a certain humility. We must not wait for a disturbing event to arrive in order to open world. We only have one life to live! I have agreed to be an ambassador for the Riders of the Woods Challenge because this activity allows participants to set a goal and put the effort into achieving it. Children and adults will have an in-kind experience and a more active lifestyle. It’s a very inspiring project and I’m happy to be part of it! “
