“What’s great about the Grande défoulement is that people who want to get involved can do just about anything. There are so many different types of activities! And if you can’t find anything you like, you can always make a donation to people who are living with cancer. It’s easy and it helps people right here in Quebec show more than ever before our solidarity against cancer” said Bruno Pelletier, Spokesperson for the Québec Cancer Foundation. “To all event organizers and participants, thank you for your support.” 

Better coping with cancer together

The money raised by the Grand défoulement will help the Foundation pursue its mission of supporting Quebecers with cancer and their loved ones. To help them feel more empowered, the Foundation offers them practical support services that meet their real needs and facilitates their access to medical treatments.
