Dash 4 Dad 2019
The Father’s Day walk/run for Prostate Cancer Research first started in 1999 under the name Do it For Dad. It was created to raise funds and awareness of prostate cancer and to help support research in this area. In 2009 the group joined Prostate Cancer Canada to connect to the national campaign. In 2017 the group decided to be independent again, and rebranded the event as Dash 4 Dad. This allowed for greater control over the event and meant that all fundraising went to London Health Sciences Foundation for local investment in research and treatment. The first two years of the newly branded event have been a great success with numbers of participants, sponsorship and fundraising increasing. We look forward to continuing to grow the event.
