PAST EVENTS

Closest to the Hole Tournament


The Maritimes Energy Association in partnership with the Ashburn Golf Club, hosts a fundraising golf tournament in support of Prostate Cancer Canada Atlantic. This annual tournament has built a reputation as an outstanding event where those in the region's energy industry and/or the local business community can network and enjoy a day on the green all in support of a great cause.

Gary Jones' Journey


For most recreational cyclists in Halifax, travelling to Toronto to compete in a cycling event on the Honda Indy racetrack would be a considerable achievement in itself. Making the 2,000 KM trip to Toronto and then participating in both the 10 KM and the 25 KM rces at The Indy Cycling Challenge - rarer still. But that's just what Gary Jones, an irrepressible 72-year-old two time cancer survivor, completed in July of 2017! Througout his journey, Gary raised over $28,000 in support of Prostate Cancer Canada. Way to go Gary!

I.S.C.A.N.S

 

The Imperial Sovereign Court of Atlantic Nova Society (I.S.C.A.N.S) chose Prostate Cancer Canada Atlantic as one of their charities of choice for the 2016/2017 year. By fundraising at many events throughout the year, the group made a very generous donation of $5,000! Thank you I.S.C.A.N.S! You can learn more about I.S.C.A.N.S here.


PGA Day

 

Focusing on the longest day of the year - PGA Professionals in Atlantic Canada team up with amateur golfers to raise awareness and support for the 1 in 7 men impacted by prostate cancer. Teams of golfers at PGA Golf Clubs across the region will play as many holes of golf as possible in the one day. The 3rd Annual PGA Day fundraiser was held in June of 2017, organized by PGA Atlantic. Learn more here.
