*La marche du Grand défoulement* is an event organized to benefit the *Quebec Cancer Foundation*, a partner of our Foundation. This initiative aims to raise awareness and collect funds to support cancer research, patient services, and cancer prevention programs. This year, the *Garde tes Cheveux* team proudly participated. Let's take a look back at *La marche du Grand défoulement* in support of our organization.
The goal of this walk is to bring the community together in a warm atmosphere while supporting a cause of great importance. Participants are encouraged to mobilize by forming teams and soliciting donations from their family, friends, and colleagues. This year, our Vice President, Sophie Reis [https://www.amazon.ca/-/fr/Sophie-Reis/dp/2895688435?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1679316948&sr=8-1&linkCode=sl1&tag=bbjetlag-20&linkId=9590c50f909b45e96a5e873a153509da&language=fr_CA&ref_=as_li_ss_tl&_encoding=UTF8&tag=gardetescheve-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=71f874270ba861d1f1c5e2f39da3df77&camp=15121&creative=330641">Un cancer en cadeau]((uncancerencadeau.com)), served as the Quebec ambassador. The *Garde tes Cheveux* team, along with several members of our wonderful community, joined this event to pay tribute to those affected by cancer, celebrate life, and promote the importance of prevention. The funds raised during this event for the *Garde tes Cheveux Foundation* totaled nearly $11,000. This will enable the Foundation to fund projects aimed at informing and assisting chemotherapy patients who wish to keep their hair during treatments. Thank you to all who participated and contributed; your support is truly appreciated. You are contributing to improving the quality of life for those affected by this disease by preserving their hair—one strand at a time! Every step we took during this walk brings us closer to this goal. Together, we make a difference!
