Saint-Laurent Welcomes the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge to the Sports Complex

10 mai 2019

Montréal, May 10, 2019 - On June 9, will you be among the courageous people who will have their head shaved at the Sports Complex? The new official site of the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, the Sports Complex is looking for 75 volunteers who will contribute, through this symbolic gesture, toward supporting children who undergo a change in their body image, due to hair loss, during chemotherapy treatments.

As it may be recalled, the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge is a major fund-raising activity that mobilizes communities in a spirit of solidarity to offer services to families of children with cancer. For 40 years, Leucan has been committed to supporting children with cancer and their families, from the time of diagnosis and at all stages of the disease and its effects.
