The funds will contribute to the Lâcher prise project through a sponsorship for the purchase of fishing equipment and packages on the Rivière-à-Mars for the participants.
Lâcher Prise project:
For 25 years, the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation has offered therapeutic adventure expeditions
for teenagers and young adults aged 14 to 29 with cancer. More than just trips in
outdoors, these expeditions are a privileged opportunity for participants to discuss their
lived with the disease, to feel a state of well-being in an exceptional natural environment and to resume
confidence in their abilities.
Next October will be the first edition of the Lâcher prise project, a pilot project organized by the
Sur la pointe des pieds foundation in collaboration with the Quebec Cancer Foundation and the breast cancer Foundation in Quebec. This fly fishing project will be held from October 2 to 6 on the Sainte-Marguerite River.
The group will consist of 10 young adults aged 30 to 39 with metastatic breast cancer.
