LOCAL NEWS BLANC-SABLON – March 1, 2021: The first shaved head challenge was a huge success atÉcole Mgr Scheffer!

CFBS was speaking on Friday with Secondary V students, Madison Letto and Shelby Woodford, of École Mgr Scheffer, about their recent participation in Défi têtes rasées Leucan, The Leucan Shaved Head Challenge on February 25th. Bravo to all who participated as they raised $3000.00, well past their original goal of raising $1000.00!

Défi têtes rasées Leucan, The Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, presented by PROXIM, is a major Leucan fundraising activity that mobilizes the community in a spirit of solidarity in order to offer services to families of children with cancer and to invest in clinical research. It is a great gesture of support for children who, during chemotherapy, undergo a change in their body image due to hair loss.
