The 28 Days Sober Challenge now well rooted in Quebec culture

More than $450,000 was raised at the Fondation Jean Lapointe 28 Days Sober Challenge with 7,050 participants and their sponsors. With its brand new ludification platform, the 28 days sober movement has brought to light a new observation: the month of sobriety is now firmly rooted in Quebec culture.

Engage in the 28 Days Sobriety Challenge

Make a difference for our youth. Participate, create your team and ask your friends and family to support you.



The 28 Day Sobriety Challenge is a unique movement that started in 2013 when two young professionals decided to stop drinking for the month of February. On the basis of that experience, the Fondation Jean Lapointe set up a committee tasked with publicizing the challenge in order to raise money for its activities.

February 1st is coming!

This will help us raise awareness on the risks of using alcohol and drugs among 90,000 teens aged 12-17, in an effort to attack the roots of this pervasive problem in Quebec. Discover our awareness program APT.
