On Saturday, June 6, motorcycles will rev their engines to raise funds for the fight against prostate cancer.
Riders and supporters from the Comox Valley region will come together to take part in a scenic ride departing from Slegg Lumber located at Small Road 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.
Registration is from 7-10 a.m. Saturday and the ride itself starts 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.
Riders, prostate cancer patients and their families, and non-riders can register and donate by visiting RideForDad.ca
