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!

How does it work?

To register yourself or your team, you must first fill out the registration form. Next, your team undertakes to raise funds for the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation. Each team is required to raise a minimum of $1,500 per person. This amount represents your ticket for your adventure on the Lac St-Jean! The On the Tip of the Toes Foundation will support you in your fundraising by supplying you with different tools and documents.

Please note that a limited number of participants can take part in the Double défi. Register now to reserve your place.

What will it look like on the ice?

All teams and individual participants will cross the Lac-St-Jean. Your adventure will be supported by the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation. Thus, we provide expedition tents for sleeping and all the necessary food. If needed, we can even lend you winter camping equipment! More details will be communicated once you or your team is registered.
