On the day of your challenge

  1. Turn your yard into a start/finish line: Put up posters and balloons, and make a finish line ribbon or confetti to throw. Let your creativity flow! You can also get a donation box to collect contributions from your neighbourhood. To learn more and reserve your donation box, contact us by email. 

  2. Show your colors: During your challenge, show your colors and your personal touch. If you have a shirt from previous years, we invite you to wear it. You can also simply wear pink or blue, or create your own team costume. Any idea is good!

  3. Have a Ceremony: To honor a veteran, survivor or loved one you have lost to cancer.

  4. Celebrate and share your thoughts and photos with us on the Facebook event page (In french only).
