Do it for Dads Walk Run

Get together, get outside! On Sunday, June 18 Prostate Cancer Canada will host the annual Do it for Dads Walk Run, a perfect Father’s Day activity. There are 4 fun, family-friendly locations across Canada that succeed year after year in raising awareness and funds for the leading cancer affecting Canadian men and the families that love them.

Run alone or walk as a group- everyone is welcome!

The event has become tradition for many families- some have been attending yearly for over a decade. They do it because it’s enjoyable. They do it because it’s a great experience. They do it because it makes a difference.

By participating, families have an impact on the research that has the greatest potential to improve prostate cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment which ensures a better quality of life for survivors.

Join us on Father’s Day for this memorable journey. Experience a sense of community as we raise awareness for the 1 in 7 Canadian men who will face a prostate cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.
