Dear friends of the Défi,

Welcome to the great gathering of the 12th edition of the Défi Cyclo-myélome. The event to benefit multiple myeloma research will take place on Saturday, May 25, 2024 at Euro-Spa (455 Rang de l'Église S, Saint-Ignace-de-Stanbridge, QC J0J 1Y0).

> Small Route (50 km)

> Long Route (70 km)

> Long Route (80 km)

Hop on your bike to help raise awareness about multiple myeloma and raise funds to support research and help find a cure for this cancer. All in compliance with the sanitary measures in place.

Join us on this great movement and offer hope to everyone suffering from multiple myeloma or who will be diagnosed with the disease in the future.

Given the structure of this event and the safety risks, the minimum age for a cyclist to participate is 14 years old and must be accompanied by a parent throughout the bike course. We will not accept cyclists carrying their child(ren) on their luggage rack and cyclists carrying their child in the baby seat or bike trailer.


Dr. Richard LeBlanc, holder of the Université de Montréal Myeloma Canada Chair in Multiple Myeloma at Hôpital Maisonneuve Rosemont (HMR), and his team count on our support to advance research and improve the care of patients who suffer from this terrible cancer. The people living with multiple myeloma and their loved ones come from across Quebec and beyond to seek treatment at the HMR and cannot afford a break.

“In the current context, your support is more vital than ever,” says Dr. LeBlanc. “My team and I need your help to continue fighting this cancer. People living with multiple myeloma are very vulnerable. They need us more than ever. Thank you for showing solidarity with those who suffer from multiple myeloma!”


If you can't make it to the big gathering, make a difference by taking part in the #MonDéfiMyélomePerso challenge. To do this, choose the “virtual cyclist” option.

On our behalf, on behalf of Dr. LeBlanc’s team as well as the many patients and their families who benefit concretely from your commitment, thank you for supporting us.

Together, let’s continue to be a source of hope and healing!
