(WINDSOR, ON) – One in seven men will get prostate cancer, so the Ride for Dad is on again this year.
To kick off the new fundraising campaign yesterday, organizers helped to boost prostate cancer research in the area by presenting last year’s donations.
Sarah White and Shane Miles handed over $20,000 to Dr Lisa Porter, of the University of Windsor, at a gathering at Thunder Road Harley Davidson. Porter spoke about how the money will benefit the advancements into the treatment of prostate cancer which are being made at her lab.
The donation was part of the money raised during the 2017 Ride for Dad, in which over 500 motorcycle riders participated. White and Miles expect a bigger turnout this year as the event grows in size.
Prior to meeting at Festival Plaza, riders can gather for breakfast at Moose Lodge where proceeds from an all you can eat meal will be donated to Ride for Dad. From the plaza, riders will tour the county with stops in Colchester, Stoney Point, and Belle River before returning to Festival Plaza. Part of the entertainment will be provided by South River Slim, who was on hand at the presentation yesterday.
The ride takes place May 27.
