Join us Father's Day June 18, 2017 in support of local Prostate Cancer Research!
Our first annual Dash 4 Dad Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer will be held Father's Day 2017. Previously Do it for Dads, we have changed our fundraising platform and are excited to announce that this year we are working exclusively with the London Health Sciences Foundation to ensure all fundraised dollars stay local.
We are extremely proud of the long standing partnership between London Health Sciences Foundation and Prostate Cancer Canada and thankful for the tremendous support from our community to both organizations through Do It For Dads. Together, we have accomplished much success including providing support to the urologic oncology fellowship program, which is one of our most important cancer training programs. This program allows urologists to super-specialize in cancer and provides invaluable, rigorous patient care and research experience. This program brings a global perspective to patient care, as well as leading-edge research to discover new and exciting treatments for prostate cancer.
In 2017, however, our partnership with Prostate Cancer Canada will come to a close as we launch DASH 4 DAD; a walk/run supporting prostate cancer care at London Health Sciences Centre via London Health Sciences Foundation. Dr. Chin and the same dedicated volunteer committee will continue to organize this event to support his research in our region.
By participating in DASH 4 DAD, you will be helping support Translational Prostate Cancer Research which aims to join scientists with clinicians to find new solutions to the most challenging issues in prostate cancer care, saving and improving the lives of men battling this disease.
Sponsorship opportunities are now available and if you would like more information please get in touch or visit our Sponsorship Page.
We hope to see you on Father's Day!
