The starting line is behind the Kirkland Super C at 3700 St-Charles Blvd., and the route runs along a pedestrian path, past Holleufer park.

“Cancer impacts the entire family. This fundraiser is special because it allows families to ban together to be heroes for those living with cancer.” said Debbie Magwood, Founder and Executive Director, West Island Cancer Wellness Centre. “I am looking forward to seeing the Hero capes flying over the course.”
