The Loto-Québec bursaries, reserved for athletes with physical or sensory limitations, were awarded at the Claude-Robillard Sports Complex during the Défi sportif AlterGo, of which Loto-Québec is one of the main sponsors.
Among the 14 scholarship winners for 2018 are Paralympic handcyclist Charles Moreau and visually impaired tandem cyclist Matthieu Croteau Daigle, each of whom was awarded $3000.

"Loto-Québec is proud to once again be able to highlight the exceptional and inspiring journeys of the 14 athletes of its 2018 Scholarship Program. The self-transcendence they demonstrate is an extraordinary source of motivation and a fine example of success," said Chantal Ferron, a limited partnership advisor at Loto-Québec's Societal Engagement Department.
"Courageous and resilient, these athletes represent great models of perseverance. Society as a whole is enriched by their quest for the highest summits, especially those of the Paralympic Games, "said Claude Chagnon, President of the Quebec Foundation for Athletic Excellence.
