A challenge for the whole family
The Défi des générations contre le cancer is an inspiring race that reminds patients from the Montérégie that they are not alone in facing the disease. Proceeds from the Défi go to the Centre intégré de cancérologie de la Montérégie (CICM).
The event will take place in a festive and family-friendly atmosphere. Participants can register for the 5-km run, 10-km run, or half-marathon, not to mention the “kilomètre des générations,” a 1 km route that grandparents, parents, and grandchildren can do together.
