A new look to change the lives of thousands of children

Les Audacieuses is a grand idea born out of the desire to create an unprecedented movement of solidarity across Quebec. Pascale Bouchard, Executive Director of Leucan, the Association for children with cancer, sought out influential, daring, confident and courageous leaders to relay this message: "I want you to shave your head. With me."

Marie-Mai was the first to answer the call and shave her head in the winter of 2020. Even if COVID-19 pushed back the launch of our project, Les Audacieuses, led by honorary godmother Marie-Mai, are back and more ready than ever.

The women you'll discover through this website said YES and together, they'll take on the most powerful gesture of solidarity with cancer-stricken children there is, all the while redifining what defines femininity.

These inspiring and proud women invite thousands across Quebec to join the movement to forever change the future of children living with cancer.

From now until they go under the razor blade in Spring 2021 and even after, get to know Les Audacieuses, what motivates them and the impact they hope to have by undertaking this great project.

An ambitious goal worthy of such a daring project

Of all fundraising activities, the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge is without a doubt the one that requires the most courage and has the greatest link between the action and the cause it supports. In the past 20 years, 95,000 people dared to shave their head for cancer-stricken children. Together, they've raised nearly $60M.

Amount raised by Les Audacieuses: 177710
