The mission of the Ride For Dad is to raise funds to save men’s lives by supporting prostate cancer research and raising public awareness of the disease.
Our goal is for men to continue to be there for their families and friends for years to come. The parade of vehicles grabs the attention of the masses and the media on ride day, the research helps find hope for the future and the awareness has the potential of saving men’s lives today.
Since 2000, the Ride For Dad has donated more than 15 million dollars to the Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation, charitable number 85133 3179 RR0001, to support prostate cancer research and awareness in the communities where the funds were raised – we give where we ride!
The Halifax Chapter contributions are then used locally for awareness campaigns and to support specific prostate cancer research through the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation, The Molly Appeal.
