Journée mondiale contre le cancer

Following up on the success of the 2016 fundraiser, Dumoulin Competition renews its vow to support an important cause: the Grand défoulement of the Quebec Cancer Foundation. The winning formula seen last year will continue to be supported by the Dumoulin brothers, who once again invite fans to come to any race of the NASCAR Pinty’s season to sign their car for the cause, and to participate to fundraising activities of the “Race against cancer” campaign. Beyond this, Jean-François and Louis-Philippe Dumoulin are lending their names to the Un ou l’autre campaign under the “Jean-François or Louis-Philippe” name, which is inspired by the statistic showing that one out of every two Quebecer will be facing cancer throughout their lives.
Last year, the amount of $13,611.75 was raised by signers of the car trunks, a donation made by the employees of Group Somavrac, and the “waiters for a night” happy hour event. All donations made throughout the 2017 “Race against cancer” campaign will once again be entirely given to the Quebec Cancer Foundation.
“Last year, people got involved, we were very proud to see the amount of people who signed our cars with so much eagerness to help. It’s a cause that’s close to our hearts, as we’ve been affected by cancer in our own family. It’s a disease that can appear at any age. Feeling powerless and seeing loved ones weakened by it is very hard. The Quebec Cancer Foundation has values that truly reach us, and we want to do everything in our power to help people through these difficult times”, share Jean-François and Louis-Philippe Dumoulin.
Jean-François and Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, as well as the Quebec Cancer Foundation, are joining forces so that the thousands of Quebecers with cancer, as well as their loved ones, can live better every day. Their association expresses that together, we can be stronger against this disease.
