​In the 8th edition of Compostelle en tandem, 24 participants undertook the nearly 200 km walk, accompanied by the tour operator of Buen Camino sur les chemins de La Tienda. They assumed this personal challenge mindful of the hardships faced daily by people affected by cancer. Thanks to these walkers, and all those who supported them, nearly $53,000 has been raised in support of the thousands of Quebecers with cancer, and their families.

“The observation I made, while walking among beautiful landscapes marked by the tranquility that emanates from the Way to Compostela, is that my life was going too fast and that I forgot the essential. Like others, I came back changed, and happy to have at the same time supported the people affected by cancer.”, shared the participant Lisa Mercier.
