Stand-up comedian and host Jay Du Temple will get his head shaved for Leucan during the last date of his Bien faire Tour on January 3, 2020 at the Bell Centre. $1 per ticket sold for that show will go directly to Leucan and Jay will match the final amount raised.
This marks the launch of the 19th edition of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge presented by Proxim. “We are delighted and lucky to count on Jay’s support. He’s generous and very engaged in the community. We are confident that his gesture will inspire others to follow in his footsteps,” said Lysanne Groulx, Provincial Director, Annual Campaigns and Communications for Leucan.
“It’s very moving to see a fellow member of the comedy community supporting this cause that’s really dear to my heart. Taking on the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge is such an important symbolic gesture of solidarity with families. Since 2012, I’ve taken on the Challenge six times with great pride, and I’m positive that Jay will feel the same way,” added Dominic Paquet, the Challenge’s spokesperson for an 8th consecutive year.
Multiple shaving sites across Quebec
Leucan encourages the Quebec population to follow the lead of Jay Du Temple, Dominic Paquet, and nearly 100,000 people across Quebec who took on the Challenge in the past, and to sign up for the Challenge at one of the official shaving sites set up by the Association. You can also organize a Personalized Challenge and choose the date, time, and place of your event.
