Jean-Christophe Renaud exemplifies our Stay Active philosophy. Jean-Christophe and his team started Run for your Life (« Cours pour ta vie ») to encourage physical exercise as prevention and maintenance of several serious health problems. They ran across Canada and taught people about the importance of physical activity. It was not an easy feat to complete a run across the country, and we were happy to be part of their difficult yet inspirational journey:
My name is Jean-Christophe Renaud. I decided to run across Canada to raise awareness about the importance to adopt a healthy lifestyle. The run across Canada is 7700km long and was to be completed in seven months. We started in Saint-John's, Newfoundland and finished in Vancouver, British-Columbia. To achieve this journey, I needed help to recover quickly for the next day. I had a Thumper Sport to help me recover. This wonderful tool helped me to get rid of lactic acid after a hard 30km day. It was useful because the Thumper Sport is small enough to use anywhere. I'm glad I had it because it helped me get through my challenge. In the end, we were able to help thousands of people to move across Canada in almost 30 different events. I’m proud of what I did and I will continue on this path. Thank you Thumper!The Thumper team would like to congratulate Run for your Life for completing the run. We are pleased to support you with your health endeavors. If you have a story you’d like to share, let us know. Stay Active!
