What We Fund

Since the inception the Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation has donated more than 13 million dollars towards prostate cancer research and awareness.
We fund cutting edge prostate cancer research!
Net proceeds from all fundraising initiatives are directed to the Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation (charitable number 85133 3179 RR0001) for prostate cancer research and awareness. Our goal is to spread awareness and fund research for prostate cancer, so that men can continue to be there for their families and friends for years to come.

We also fund public awareness campaigns!

It is estimated there are 1.2 million men with prostate cancer in Canada; however, 800,000 men don’t know they have it.

Why are there so many Canadian men with undiagnosed prostate cancer? Because men don’t talk about it, don’t regularly go to their doctors, and don’t enjoy getting a prostate exam. That’s where the Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation, and the TELUS Ride For Dad, comes in; we get men talking about and women talking to men about it. We promote awareness in the community year round, and because of this awareness countless men have gone to their doctors to undergo testing, and many of them have been diagnosed early and successfully treated!
