    MONTREAL, June 15 /CNW Telbec/ - Mayor Gérald Tremblay and Dickie Moore
invite members of the media to the 3rd edition of the PROCURE Walk of Courage
at Park Jean-Drapeau on St. Hélène's Island. The two honorary co-presidents
aim to educate the public about prostate cancer which currently affects close
to 25 000 Canadians a year. Supporting them are representatives from the three
professional sports clubs of Montreal: former players from the Montreal
Canadiens, Eric Lapointe of the Montreal Alouettes, as well as Joey Saputo and
Eduardo Sebrango from the Montreal Impact. Robert Charlebois will greet
parents and friends in a sing-a-long at the finish line.

and join the team of those who are working to dispel the taboo's associated
with prostate cancer.
