BLUE GLOVE CAMPAIGN
Posted on Wednesday June 06, 2018 at 09:40AM
The Blue Glove Campaign is now underway in Thorsby ....
Buy a "blue glove" and support prostate cancer research and the Motorcycle Ride for Dad. Here's why!
The mission of Motorcycle Ride for Dad (MRFD) is to raise awareness and funds to help save men's lives by supporting Prostate Cancer research across Canada.
The goal is to enable men to continue to be there for their families and friends for years to come. The facts are this.....
- One in seven men will get prostate cancer in their life
- At any given time in Canada there are ONE MILLION (about 7% of the adult male population) men who have prostate cancer
- 800,000 won't even know they have cancer as they have never been checked or tested
With the help of local businesses here in Thorsby, we are hoping with your support that we can raise awareness and funding. The campaign will be carried out through June as a follow on support campaign to the Ride for Dad event on June 9, the funds raised will be presented to the organizers of the Motorcycle Ride for Dad at the end of the Month. All the funds raised stay local and will go to the Cross Cancer research facility in Edmonton.
