Thank you to our title sponsor Raymond James

Thanks to our title sponsor, Raymond James, 100% of funds raised through this event directly support programs and services offered through Island Prostate Centre; serving men and families facing prostate cancer, right here on Vancouver Island. This year, they are MATCHING all funds raised, up to $15,000!

We need the support of our community more than ever.

Without government funding, we rely on the power of private donors who are willing to support us through monthly, annual, or one-time giving. We’re more vulnerable than ever during a global pandemic when in-person fundraising events – our greatest revenue source – have gone virtual. If you can give, please do.

We know men still need us and we want to ensure that we are here to help!

Need some help with your fundraising? We have you covered!

Trust us, we get that asking people for money is a difficult task. But if you have been impacted by prostate cancer in some way – you or someone you know has been diagnosed – you know how important raising money really is to ensure Island Prostate Centre is there to help!

THANK YOU for taking the first step in wanting to help – we are with you every step of the way!

We have created some really easy tools to help you reach your fundraising goals. Tip sheets, downloadable files to just simply cut and paste into emails…you name it, we have it! If you need more help, just let us know.

We’re thankful for the generous support of our event sponsor. Please read a statement below from Raymond James:

“Giving back to the communities in which we live and work has been part of our mission since the beginning but supporting our local community is more important that ever right now.

Prostate cancer, like all cancers, deeply affects individuals and families – our employees, our clients, and many others throughout our communities. This is why Raymond James is proud to continue our partnership with Island Prostate Centre and our sponsorship of the Raymond James Father’s Day Walk/Run.

While this year’s event is a virtual event, we are proud to continue our dedication to the cause by matching all fundraising dollars, up to $15,000. We believe that being active in our communities helps us continue to grow a successful business and build strong personal relationships with organizations like the Island Prostate Centre, who continue to do such vital work.”

 

THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR SPONSORS FOR MAKING THIS EVENT POSSIBLE
