Online registration open for Ride For Dad prostate cancer awareness fundraiser

Ride starts at Slegg Lumber at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 18

Start your engines! The Comox Valley Telus Ride For Dad campaign to fight prostate cancer is taking to the road on Saturday, June 18.

On that day, motorcycles will rev their engines to raise funds for the fight against prostate cancer – the most commonly diagnosed men’s cancer in Canada. Riders and supporters from the Vancouver Island region will come together to take part in a scenic ride departing from Slegg Lumber located at 3217 Small Rd. in Cumberland.

The Telus Motorcycle Ride For Dad is asking the community to get involved, be committed, and lend their support. You don’t need to be a motorcycle rider to help fight against prostate cancer – non-riders can make a donation, raise their own pledges as a champion, volunteer or just come out to the event to cheer on the riders!

Pre-registration for the ride is ongoing at RideForDad.ca, or register the day of the event, at Slegg Lumber, from 7-10 a.m. The ride begins at 10:30.

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed men’s cancer. One in seven Canadian men will be diagnosed with this disease. Twelve men will die from it today. 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 Ride For Dad is Canada’s largest annual group of power-sport events dedicated to fighting prostate cancer through research and public awareness. The Telus Ride For Dad has grown to include events in almost 40 cities in every province in the country. Today, more than 250,000 men, women and children have been involved, raising more than $18 million to fight prostate cancer.

Riders, prostate cancer patients and their families, and non-riders can register and donate by visiting www.RideForDad.ca
