A warm welcome to “Girls Ride” in Victoriaville

A warm welcome to “Girls Ride” in Victoriaville

They were more than 1,000 people on their motorbikes, most of them pink. The “Ride de Filles” received a standing ovation during this afternoon’s stop in Victoriaville.

If we add the organization’s members and volunteers, more than 1,400 people came to pick up supplies at the Agri-Sport booth. Earlier, the group took a break in Tingwick, where donations were handed out to them by the community. They will then return to Drummondville, which was the starting point this morning.

The Breast Cancer Foundation of Quebec has set an ambitious goal for this year: $500,000.

President and spokesperson, singer Lulu Hughes, is thrilled that the event is getting bigger year by year.

“It’s great to see so many participants this year. As for how much we’re going to raise, I promised to do the bacon dance if we hit the target. A few members of the organization warned me it would be a good idea to rehearse!”

Lulu Hugues is participating for the fifth time in “Girls Ride”. The survivor herself – she has battled cancer three times – this is a very important post for her.

“I want to give back to the community through my commitment. I have the opportunity to meet extraordinary and inspiring people. This year, we have 73 survivors and 14 fighters among the participants. And we feel a lot of mutual support in the group,” she says.

The day will end with a charity show at Centrexpo Cogeco in Drummondville, at 8pm.

“I’ll be bringing with me, on stage, my brother Rick, Luce Duvault, Kevin Barnet, Brigitte Puigoli, and the show’s singers live from the universe. It’s going to be a great party!”
