The Laurentides-Lanaudière Leaders Challenge

The Leaders Challenge is an initiative that is part of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, which aims to mobilize leaders across Quebec around the cause of children with cancer and their families.

Together for Leucan!

On November 8, The Académie Sainte-Thérèse held its Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, presented by Proxim. A total of 19 dedicated participants changed their appearance in support of cancer-stricken children. Thanks to their commitment, they raised over $27,000 for Leucan. With such a success, Académie Sainte-Thérèse was awarded the title of Young Leader. Congratulations and THANK YOU for helping to make life easier for hundreds of families!

A touching and unifying tribute!

To pay tribute to their older brother Gabriel, who died earlier this winter of osteosarcoma, Romy-Olivia and Mathis wanted to shave their hair for Leucan. They were joined by 37 participants from their school, most of them between the ages of 8 and 12. Together, they created a strong movement of solidarity to honor Gabriel, but also to support all families who have a child with cancer. They presented a cheque for more than $31,000 as part of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, presented by Proxim. With this amount, Jean-Duceppe Elementary School has been awarded the title of Young Leader. Congratulations to all of you, you are so inspiring!

Les Triades de Lanaudière: a second mention as Young Leader!

For the second year in a row, the Lanaudière Triades soccer team was named Young Leader thanks to their Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, presented by Proxim. This year, more than $11,000 was donated to Leucan. Through their commitment, the team is making a difference for hundreds of cancer-stricken children and their families. Congratulations for your wonderful gesture!

A giant gesture!

Initiated by Cathy Laroche, vice-president of communications, marketing, and media at Albi le géant, it’s with two of her colleagues, Joanie Martel and Jeans-Sébastien Racette, that they took up the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, presented by Proxim, on May 13. Denis Leclerc, president of the company, contributed to the fundraising by pledging to donate an amount for every vehicle sold between May 13 and May 21.  With the cause at heart, a total of $58 188 was donated to cancer-stricken children and their families. Thank you for your gesture of GIANTS which places you as leaders.
