On Saturday June 18, 2016, 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 Road in Cumberland. This year’s Ride Captain will be former MP, Deb Grey who now resides in Qualicum Beach http://www.debgrey.com/bio.html.

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!

Where: Slegg Lumber located at 3217 Small Road, Cumberland

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. From its humble beginnings, 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
