Plaid for Dad – a new Father’s Day tradition!

This is Plaid For Dad!

We’re expecting thousands of workplaces and individuals from across Canada to Go Plaid and help end prostate cancer through donations, fundraising and events. The Friday before Father’s Day is officially designated as the day to wear Plaid for Dad. Participants will share photos online using the hashtag #PlaidforDad to show their support and help spread the word.

Over the past 25 years, thanks to our supporters, Prostate Cancer Canada has accomplished so much. The mortality rate has been cut in half and we’ve invested over $120 million in research. If detected early, survival is now close to 100 per cent. Sadly, we’re still losing too many “dads” to this disease; over 4,000 each year. We know with your help, we can change that!

Be part of this incredible fundraising campaign! How will you Go Plaid for Dad?
