We are walking and running in support of prostate cancer!
While we all wait for our turn at a vaccine for COVID-19, men across Canada are facing an uncertain future with a prostate cancer diagnosis. Yes there are treatment options, but the reality is cancer is cancer, and we all know there is no vaccine for it! Prostate cancer is the #1 cancer for men and the second leading cause of cancer death. 1 in 9 men will be diagnose with prostate cancer this year.
Now more than ever men are feeling alone in their cancer fight. With other resources at a minimum, Prostate Cancer BC and Prostate Cancer Support Canada has continued to step up their services. When they were forced to close the in person support groups, they creatively took them online. Prostate Cancer BC gathered speakers from all corners of the globe to present the best to anyone who needs it.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Support us and make a donation to Prostate Cancer Foundation BC's 23rd Annual Father’s Day Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer via my personal web page below. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, we will be walking or running individually or in family groups.
WHY ARE WE PARTICIPATING IN THE RUN?
Because this run is for the tens of thousands of Canadian men living courageously with prostate cancer and their families. It is also for all the men who have died from this disease and the families who have lost loved ones. It’s for the roughly 26,000 men who will be diagnosed in 2021 and everyone who cares about them.
THE FATHER'S DAY WALK RUN EVENT
Is an annual event hosted by Prostate Cancer Foundation BC, a volunteer based organization that represents BC’s prostate cancer patients, their families and communities. Through Prostate Cancer Support Canada, they are also supporting men in Thunder Bay and across Canada. 50% of the money our group raises will support our work in Thunder Bay and 50% will support men across Canada.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and for giving the men in your life the gift of health this Father's Day.
