Star Volunteer

Because we value our volunteers, we want to highlight their involvement.

Alain Tassé
Police officer in the Emergency Unit of La Sûreté du Québec - retired as of 2015 - Alain Tassé, a true man of heart, gave of himself whole souled throughout the event La Traversée le Courage d’Avancée that was held in 2017. Alain briefly describes himself as being helpful, motivated by gratitude - but he proved to the members of the Foundation that he is much more than that! Present throughout most of the Traversée, Alain helped in so many ways! Profoundly impressed by Julien Racicot’s devotion, Alain exclaims: "To see Julien, despite his own handicap and needs to take care of, still make the time to help others in the same condition - that spoke to me!"He didn’t need any more convincing to join in on this magnificent adventure where he managed to make a huge difference! Once more, thank you Alain: thank you for being you, thank you for everything you did!

Additional involvement deserving to be highlighted:

Thank you for your contribution to our goal of making autonomy accessible and inclusive.

Carl Racicot

Here we put the spotlight on the unconditional love of a father. A father who, for the total duration of the La Traversée le Courage d’Avancer – a whole of 24 days – put his own life aside to dedicate himself entirely to this noble cause that is not only his son’s but also thousands of Québecers. Present from beginning to end, Carl was able to wear with ease the multiple hats that unforeseen circumstances required. And what to say of the moral support that this man procured to the team?! Once more, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for everything.

Louis-Pier Racicot

Violinist for Cavalia, Louis-Pier graciously conceived the soundtracks used for all the videos of La Traversée le Courage d’Avancer! Furthermore, he composed these exhilarating pieces in his rare spare time – between two shows while touring in the United States of America. Through his music, we can easily feel the experience and admiration of a little brother who firmly believes in the Foundation’s mission!

Guy Jobin

A special thank you to Guy Jobin who has accomplished the colossal task of translating into English every document and text for the Foundation! Guy is not only a friend of the family and Julien’s business partner but also a deep-rooted supporter of the Foundation.
