Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed men's cancer. One in seven Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. Successful treatment depends on early detection. In the longer term, research into improved diagnosis, treatment, prevention and a cure will improve our capacity to deal with this disease.
The TELUS Motorcycle Ride For Dad is Canada's largest annual motorcycle event dedicated to fighting prostate cancer through research and public awareness. From its humble beginnings, the Ride For Dad has grown to include over 30 cities in every province in the country. Today, more than 100,000 men, women and children have been involved, raising more than $10 million to fight prostate cancer.
Motorcycle riders, prostate cancer patients and their families and non-riders can participate and donate by visiting www.RideForDad.ca
