Alexandre views this challenge as a way to prove that wounded service personnel are still able to not only go on with their daily lives, but to excel in their lives as well.
Alexandre was born in Arthabaska, Quebec, and served five years in the 5th Combat Engineer Regiment as a sapper. Alexandre has trained all around Canada and the U.S. and was deployed to the Kandahar region of Afghanistan in 2009. While serving, he was thrown into the air by an IED. On landing, he broke his nose, sustained multiple facial lacerations, concussion and a back injury that resulted in paraesthesia in his left leg and chronic pain. ‘I was extremely pleased to learn that I had been chosen for the next stage of the Walking With The Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge. It means a lot for me to take the next step. The doctors were discouraging when I was repatriated after my injury and the first year was very difficult.’
