Thanks to its numerous initiatives carried out across the province, the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation is able to make awareness and promotion of breast health a priority.
The QBCF promotes access to quality information and awareness-raising activities, such as seminars and information booths, in order to enable women to take breast health into their own hands.
La Virée Rose
In 2014, in an effort to encourage women to take breast health into their own hands, the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation funded an extensive awareness raising campaign: La Virée Rose.
Since 2001 the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation has been committed to promoting breast health through extensive awareness raising and educational campaigns. Thus, every year, the Foundation develops a new campaign to inform people about healthy lifestyle choices.
