Pants Off for Prostate Cancer
Pants Off for Prostate Cancer St. John's was on September 24, 2015! This innovative fundraising event provided guests with a memorable evening in support of Prostate Cancer Canada. Along with their coats, men and women checked their pants at the door. What followed was an unforgettable and fashionably fun evening with women and men in their boxers - all for a good cause.

Bare All for the Barre presented by RBC Dominion Securities
On September 19th, the Halifax Farmer’s Seaport Market had an evening of live music and an intense workout in support of Prostate Cancer Canada Atlantic Region.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to effect Canadian men. On average, 66 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer every day. But, if detected early, the survival rate can be over 90%.
Your clothes stay on! Men often don’t talk about their health, and we want to change that. By “baring it all”, 100 men stepped outside of their comfort zone and tried a new fitness activity for a good cause.
Barre is a worldwide fitness phenomenon that has its basis in ballet, Pilates, yoga and strength conditioning. Barre is one of the fastest-growing activities in North America and with good reason – in one hour, you strengthen and tone your whole body in a non-impact environment.
