Canada went Plaid for Dad on June 17th!
Thank you to the thousands of Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast for putting on their best plaid on June 17th to help protect men from prostate cancer! The number of people wearing plaid this year more than tripled versus last year, helping us raise funds and awareness for the most common cancer affecting men. Looking forward to more success in 2017!

Why do it
Leading up to Father’s Day, a time when the focus is already on men and families, we can raise funds and awareness to help protect men from prostate cancer - the most common cancer affecting men.

Whether it’s a shirt, a tie, a scarf, or even a suit – if it’s plaid it’ll work! With just a simple wardrobe choice, you’ll be helping protect the 1 in 8 men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

My family and I have a very personal connection to prostate cancer. I hope that by sharing our story we can help another family benefit from our experience. If it were not for my wife’s vigilance and persistence my story might be very different.

When Evan Hickey learned that his father, Bob, had been diagnosed with prostate cancer, he was shocked – left with what he describes as “a very surreal feeling”. That was in 2009, and at the time he didn’t know much about the disease. He had a lot of questions…

Thank you Hudson’s Bay!
Canadians who were looking to update their plaid for this year’s campaign were able to do so through Canada’s most iconic retailer, Hudson’s Bay, who became the Official Retail Partner of Plaid for Dad.
