Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Quebec Cancer Foundation has been obliged to cancel certain charity voyages. The announcement was nevertheless greeted by a great outpouring of solidarity from participants.

Despite the postponement of the Retraite bienfaitrice de yoga en nature, the cancellation of the Chemin des Sanctuaires Challenge and the Magdalen Islands Challenge in June, $14,600 in donations has been raised to support the Foundation's mission, which each year helps thousands of Quebecers throughout the province affected by cancer.

The Foundation would like to express its sincere gratitude to all the participants and donors of Voyage ta vie who have shown such incredible generosity in this time of pandemic.

"We accept their support as a most beautiful gesture of solidarity at a time when it matters most. Because in the midst of all the uncertainty we are currently experiencing, in the face of the unknown, one unalterable fact remains: cancer is not in quarantine. It continues to have an impact on a great number of Quebecers and the need remains immense. That is why now more than ever, public support is essential." says Quebec Cancer Foundation Director General Marco Decelles.

The Ministère de la santé et des services sociaux has retained the services of the Quebec Cancer Foundation, recognizing them as essential. This is why the Foundation's accommodation activities for all those undergoing treatment and its Info-cancer Services are still in operation.

Each year, from March to September, Voyage ta vie organizes five charity voyages in Quebec, Europe and Morocco. 100% of the funds raised go to the Quebec Cancer Foundation. These trips offer participants unforgettable adventures in the company of other walkers, as well as the opportunity to celebrate life and pay tribute to the courage of the thousands of Quebecers dealing with cancer.
