Inspiration can be found almost anywhere. In this case, look no further than the nine-year-old daughter of Steve Careau, Director of Golf at The Grand Vallon in Beaupré, Qué.

Frédérique, just nine years old, took the initiative to shave her head in front of 90-plus participants in a Golf Fore the Cure presented by Subaru event last month. Thanks to her remarkable courage, Frédérique raised $2,695 (a third of the event's total donations) to be donated towards the Québec Breast Cancer Foundation.
