Since the beginning of the partnership between Leucan and Proxim in 2011, this major grouping of independent pharmacies has donated over $1 million to the Association, including $133,978 to date this year.
The Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, presented by Proxim since 2016
Prior to becoming the presenting sponsor of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, Proxim was the presenting sponsor of the Leucan Ski Challenge for 3 years in 2013-2015.
Today, Leucan is proud to announce that Proxim will be returning as presenting sponsor of the Shaved Head Challenge for a fifth year in 2020 and will take part in the 20th anniversary celebrations of this flagship event.
A committed sponsor from head to toe!
Over the years, the pharmacists and employees of Proxim’s head office organized many Challenges. This past September 27th, as part of the Proxim-Uniprix Symposium, nine individuals took their turn under the razor blade in support of families, including a few for a second time. See images from this touching experience!
A number of pharmacists-owners also act as honorary presidents to rally their networks, recruit participants, and raise a maximum of donations for the cause.
And that’s not all! This past year, Proxim donated proceeds from the McKesson Canada Golf Tournament to Leucan.
We warmly thank Alain Arel, President – Uniprix and Proxim, all employees from the head office, and all the pharmacists-owners for their support and contribution.
Last spring, Proxim invited people to add their voice to a great Wall of Encouragement. Let’s relive this beautiful moment together!
