iProspect Challenge 2014

Work Hard Play Heart

Support our 10 executives who will learn about sailing in their journey between Quebec City and St-Pierre-et-Miquelon (France) promoting physical fitness among youth instead of screen time.

The Issue

93% of young Canadians are physically inactive over 8 hours per day.

Barely 5% of young Canadians achieve the recommended daily minimal duration of 60 minutes of exercise 26% of young Canadians are overweight or obese Children that spend over 2h a day in front of the television run the risk of becoming obese or being overweight

The Challenge

Set the example by sailing the sea between Quebec City and St-Pierre-et-Miquelon

Our 10 executives will swap their computers for training gear in preparation for the Quebec - St-Pierre-et-Miquelon sailing challenge.

  • 180 days of physical training
  • 120 non-stop hours on the sea
  • 10 executives learning about sailing
  • 1,630 km on water

A Real Bonding Challenge

Each of the 77 iProspect employees spend a lot of time in front of the computer screen: over 2,000 hours per year! To show their support and a united front they have also accepted the challenge! They will be taking part in over 130 training and exercise sessions to help raise funds for a worthy cause.

Our Goal
