Chris Boucher

Chris Boucher picked up basketball on the outdoor playgrounds of Montreal North. He was a high-school dropout, worked in a fast-food restaurant and often found himself riding the overnight bus to stay safe. Today, he’s earned a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract as a professional basketball player.
