(LP Dumoulin in victory lane celebrates his 2nd NASCAR Pinty Series Championship)
Cancer in one way or another has effected all of us, whether we have suffered and fought through it or have had family and friends face the fight. For LP Dumoulin and his team, Cancer and research for it hits close to home.
On March 3, 2021 a virtual press conference was held to talk about the continued effort of the Race against Cancer initiative in support of the Quebec Cancer Foundation. Every year since 2016 the team has collected donations through fans, partners and sponsors by letting people sign the car as a gift for their generosity.
More donors are always welcomed in addition to their current partners...especially in the fight against Cancer. Jeff the owner of a Gin Distillery in Becancour, Quebec called Distillerie du Quai, and a Disco DJ, Jean Beauchesne who has survived a battle with Cancer, have teamed up with Dumoulin Competition for this upcoming race season for the Race Against Cancer program.
Approximately $78,000 in donations has already been collected since the 2016 year when it started, all the money goes directly to the Quebec Cancer Foundation to help support cancer patients and family members effected by this disease.
"$100 donation would be a night in our hostel and a $50 donation would help patients get massage therapy" Luce Girard shared when asked about how donations help the foundation give support.
Trois Rivieres, Quebec is where Dumoulin Competition calls home and every year the NASCAR Pinty Series makes a stop there on the schedule for the Grand Prix of Trois Rivieres. During the Press Conference, Jessica Menard from the Trois Rivieres race track was excited about the chance of spectators this year.
"August 13, 14 and 15th race weekend we are planning on having fans at the track".
