The Leucan Shaved Head Challenge is back for an 18th edition

Leucan is proud to launch the 18th edition of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, presented by PROXIM today.

Since the first edition of the Challenge in 2001, more than 85,000 individuals have had their turn under the razor blade, in support of children going through a change in body image with hair loss caused by chemotherapy. “I rarely had experiences that filled me with as much pride as taking part in the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge. I urge everyone to live this one-of-a-kind experience, which brings new hope and confidence to cancer-stricken children,” says Dominic Paquet, participant and spokesperson of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge for a 7th year.

The next generation is invited to take part in the Leucan Leadership Challenge

The Leucan Leadership Challenge is an initiative that is a part of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge. The goal is to rally leaders from across the province around the cause of cancer-stricken children and their families. For the first edition last year, business leaders were invited to mobilize their colleagues and employees and raise a minimum of $25,000 in donations to take part in the Challenge. This year, to recognize the next generation of philanthropists, Leucan invites young people aged 7 to 25 to join the movement and collect a minimum of $10,000 in donations. “The youth component gives young people a unique opportunity to initiate themselves to philanthropy, to show their leadership, and to become the conscientious adults of tomorrow, deeply involved in their community,” adds Mr. Alain Champagne, Partner and CEO of Optimé International, Founding Leader of the Leucan Leadership Challenge, and eight-time participant in the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge.

People are encouraged to sign up at one of the official Leucan shaving sites or to launch a Personalized Challenge and decide on the date, time, location, and scope of their own Challenge. People can also support a participant by visiting tetesrasees.com.
