2019 marks the 11th Ride for Dad in Manitoba. Over the past ten years the Manitoba Motorcycle Ride for Dad has raised over $2.2 million for prostate cancer research and education. Proceeds stay in Manitoba. Last year Manitoba led the nation in number of registered riders (1,440) and funds raised (over $350,000).
If you are not a rider, you can still register and collect pledges as a ‘Ride Champion’. This makes you eligible for all of the same prizes as registered riders and also eligible for the ‘Captains Club’ for raising $1,000 or more in pledges. There is no registration fee to be a ‘Ride Champion’.
Beat the rush and pick-up your Ride packages and free Gimli lunch coupon! Riders can register online at ridefordad.ca/manitoba and pick-up their Ride Package in-person Thursday, May 23 and Friday, May 24 from 4 pm to 8 pm, Earls Polo Park.
There are 1.2 million men with prostate cancer in Canada and 80 per cent don’t know it. Successful treatment depends on early detection. A simple PSA test and exam is all you need. Visit your doctor and get checked.
All funds raised stay in Manitoba for prostate cancer research and education, including funding for groundbreaking research by Dr. Sabine Mai at the Genomic Centre for Prostate Cancer Research and oncology research at the University of Winnipeg, University of Manitoba and CancerCare Manitoba.
