Leucan Shaved Head Challenge 2023 Regional Campaign

There are many ways for you to take part in the Challenge’s solidarity movement. Whether it’s with your company, your school, at a regional event organized by Leucan, or privately (alone or in a group), choose the option you prefer and take up the Challenge in your own image. In every corner of the region, the Challenge will bring together dedicated people who, like you, will make the great gesture of solidarity of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge to give hope to the families of children with cancer.

A touching and unifying event in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville!

On June 11, 16 brave participants took up the Challenge at a regional event organized by Leucan at CF Promenades St-Bruno, in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville. With friends, family or on their own, they made this great gesture of solidarity in front of their loved ones. They joined dozens of others in the region who have been participating since the beginning of the year, in schools, businesses and private individuals. Together, they raised $233,172 in support of children with cancer and their families, of which over $14,000 was raised by Challenge participants in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville.

 

 

On site, young spokesperson Émilie, now in remission, encouraged and thanked participants for their support. In fact, two of her friends took up the Challenge to honor the courage and positivism she showed during her treatments.

 

Thanks to CF Promenades St-Bruno for hosting this great event!

Émilie, an inspiring young spokesperson

“Hello there! My name is Émilie. In March 2020, right at the beginning of the pandemic, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I feel really lucky to be able to say that I’ve been in remission for almost three years now. It hasn’t been a smooth ride with the treatments, but Leucan’s many services have allowed my family and me to have a little balm on our wounds. Through the moments of respite that Leucan has given us, I’ve had the chance to meet some incredible young people and to rub shoulders with staff who wear their hearts on their sleeves.

As spokesperson for the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, I invite you to take up the Challenge with your school, your company or privately, at the time and place of your choice. Your gesture of solidarity will have a tremendous impact on young cancer patients.”

Leucan Leaders Challenge in Montérégie

The Leucan Leaders Challenge is part of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge and is designed to mobilize leaders across the province around the cause of children with cancer. The Challenge highlights the most impressive fund-raising efforts in the youth, corporate and civic sectors.

École primaire Joseph-De Sérigny: a lesson in solidarity!

An educator at Joseph-De Sérigny elementary school had been thinking about participating in the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge for a few years. When a young student at the school was diagnosed with cancer, she decided to organize a Challenge. Staff, parents and students quickly came together and raised over $15,000 by agreeing to shave off their hair in solidarity with Léo. According to Léo, all these people are now “as beautiful as I am!” To honour this record-time achievement, we’re delighted to bestow the distinction of Youth Leader!

Collège Saint-Maurice: an electric atmosphere for youth leaders!

Collège Saint-Maurice in Saint-Hyacinthe decided to join the solidarity movement for families of children with cancer, and organized its first Leucan Shaved Head Challenge on April 6. In an electric atmosphere and in front of hundreds of young people and staff massed at the foot of the stage, the 15 participants gave up their hair, a gesture that enabled them to raise close to $18,000.

We’re delighted to give them the Youth Leader title, and congratulations!

Cégep de Saint-Hyacinthe: an annual event
