On the Tip of the Toes Foundation

Since 1996, the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation has organized therapeutic adventure expeditions for young people living with cancer. These adventures are much more than just wilderness outings; they give participants an opportunity to spend time with other young people who share the same realities, to exchange ideas, and to be understood without needing to explain themselves. We aim to help them regain self-esteem and recover hope in life by enabling them to surpass themselves during these expeditions. Further, by facing challenges together, they can create close bonds of friendship, as many young people wish to do at this stage of their lives.

Conventional medical treatments aim to treat the body’s ailments, but therapeutic adventure heals the soul, the heart, and the mind. Our interventions – together with the beauty of the landscapes, the contact with nature, and the pleasure of sharing in the group activities – enable young people living with cancer to change their story, to become aware of their strengths, and to recover their dreams.

How Can I Get Involved?

Dearest Bucksters,

 

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we inform you of the passing of our beloved Chairman, Bruce Charron. Bruce was in a tragic and fatal ski accident at Jay Peak on Sunday February 10 th.

 

To label Bruce our Chairman does not begin to describe the impact of a truly amazing individual. Bruce was a husband, father, grandfather, mentor, friend, and award winning community leader. Not only did he hold each of these titles, he excelled to the highest degree at all.

 

His indelible mark will be honored with services to be held this coming Monday, February 18th at the:

 

Mount Royal Funeral Complex
1297 Forest Rd.
Outremont H2V 2P9

 

Visitation 2:00PM - 4:00PM
Service 4:00PM

 

The Charron family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Bruce’s memory to the charity that he dedicated so much of his life to, Andy Collins For Kids .

 

Please note there is very limited parking at the Mount Royal Cemetery parking lots. It is strongly suggested that you come by Taxi, Uber or car pool.
