Walk to Fight All Cancers 2023

The Yamaska Valley Optimist Club and the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Foundation are pleased to announce the return in person of the Walk to Fight All Cancers!

Participants are invited to join us on Sunday, October 1st, 2023, at 9:30 a.m. at the Centre Communautaire Lac-Brome for either a 5 or 10 km walk.


This year, the Yamaska Valley Optimist Club will be offering a great alternative for participants who don’t want to walk, or are undergoing cancer treatment. Yoga teacher Laura Hernandez will be present to offer an adapted class during the event. A rest tent will also be set up.

We would like to thank the honorary co-chairs for holding dear the cause of the Walk to Fight All Cancers: Dr. Christine Cadrin, gynecologist at BMP Hospital and cancer survivor, and Jaime Moar, cancer survivor. Thanks also to the two Walk leaders, Johanne Coiteux and Louise Gelinas, and to Judy Henderson, president of the Yamaska Valley Optimist Club.

Thank you to the sponsors of the Walk to Fight All Cancers: Pharmacie Jean Coutu Julie Coderre and Team McGale-Charpentier-Côté from National Bank Financial for their commitment to the cause.

Equipment renewal

This year, funds raised during the Walk will contribute to renewing equipment used in the treatment of cancer patients. Since the creation of the Walk in 2001, the Yamaska Valley Optimist Club has raised close to $1,250,000. All this money has been used to provide cancer patients with modern, state-of-the-art facilities.
