Marie-Mai shaves her head as part of Leucan Shaved Head Challenge’s 20th anniversary

After more than one year as Godmother of Leucan, Marie-Mai has made the most significant gesture of solidarity there is towards children with cancer: she shaved her head as part of the 20th anniversary of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, presented by Proxim.

Marie-Mai showed off her new hairdo on the digital cover of Elle Québec magazine. “I shaved my head in solidarity with those who don’t have the privilege of making that choice; and, thanks to them, I know now that courage, beauty and strength have nothing to do with the length of one’s hair,” said Marie-Mai.

Marie-Mai, the first of twenty exceptional women to unveil a new look

Marie-Mai shaving her head is part of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge’s flagship activity aiming to unite 20 great women from across Quebec, spanning various horizons, who will follow Marie-Mai’s lead and have their heads shaved next May. These women’s identities will be revealed next week in Leucan’s publications.

“We are so proud that our Godmother accepted our invitation and made this daring gesture. The fact that she is leading this ambitious and unifying project is a testament to her generosity and the depth of her commitment towards cancer-stricken children. Of all the fundraising activities, the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge is without a doubt the one that requires the most courage and has the strongest, most direct connection to the cause that it supports”, adds Pascale Bouchard, executive director of Leucan.

Leucan and Marie-Mai invite the population to join this great movement and take part in the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge.
