For the past six years, our goals have been to educate people about
multiple myeloma and to raise funds for research on multiple myeloma in partnership with Myeloma Canada Chair.
Together with all the participants and donors we join forces to eradicate this cancer one day. Even more, we pay tribute to patients who fight it, to researchers who try to unmask it and those who contribute to the well-being of those affected.
Co-founders: Francine Ducas, Maryse Bouchard and Chair Director Dr. Richard LeBlanc

Please note that it will also be possible to register for the short loop course (50km). We ask you to specify it at the time of registration. The cost remains the same since we offer the same benefits. The departure will be at 1 pm and the participants are required to arrive at 11:30am.

By making a contribution, you are allowing our researchers and our scientific teams to excel even further and develop the next generation of promising treatments and medications. You will also help improve patient care.
With the generosity of our donors, we will finally be able to create a unique cell bank that will enable us to identify and characterize myeloma genetic predispositions. An absolute first in Quebec and Canada!
Until recently, the usual survival of people with multiple myeloma was 3 to 4 years. In recent years, it has grown to more than six years. Thanks to the donations of people as caring as you, we will be able to improve the chances of survival of those affected.
Many thanks to all our generous partners, sponsors and donors. Your involvement and your moral and financial support are greatly appreciated and we are very grateful. We want to tell you how much your contribution, small or large, is important in achieving our goals while encouraging us to persevere in the path of healing.Your support is crucial to achieving this life-saving project. That's why we invite you to
make a donation.
