Not just a physical challenge, but above all a mental challenge one, as experienced by the young people living with cancer who embark on an expedition with the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation. We enthusiastically invite you to take part in the Double Défi, an experience that aims to raise funds to permit young people living with cancer to participate in a therapeutic adventure.
A secondary objective of the Double Défi, is to provide a unique outdoor experience for those who are ready to surpass their limits by setting the personal goal of crossing the frozen Lac St-Jean on skis or snowshoes. They will be completely self-sufficient and will cross the lake at the pace of a typical expedition. They will travel from 5 to 15 kilometers per day and will sleep a tent right in the middle of Lac St-Jean, which, in the wind and snow, looks just like an arctic ice field.
In total, close to 100 people will have the opportunity to take on this unique challenge. We’re hoping to see you on the lake!
