La Marche en Rose
Marche en Rose is a walk in the Gatineau region with the goal of fighting breast cancer. A 30 km path is offered, and new this year, a 15 km path will also be available. The event helps raise funds for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer in the Outaouais region. This year, a fundraising of $ 200,000 is targeted. Each participant must raise a minimum of $ 1,000 for the cause.

 

Honorary president
It is with great enthusiasm that Céline Bériault, takes over Guylaine Lapointe, as honorary president of La Marche en Rose. “I am very happy to be the Honorary President for the 4th edition of La Marche en Rose. Breast cancer is a cause close to my heart, having dear friends who have been affected. I wish that women and men of the Outaouais region have access to devices on the cutting edge of technology that allow detection of breast cancer quickly. I invite all of you to walk with me on August 22! “Mrs. Bériault wanted to share.

 

The cause
By participating in La Marche en Rose, participants commit to raising a minimum of
$ 1,000. The money raised will be used to purchase a digital mammography unit evaluated from $ 260,000 to $ 375, 000.  The device on the cutting edge of technology will have very detailed images and highly accurate results, reducing recall rates for more examinations. This highly effective breast cancer screening tool is essential for women and men in our region.
