Join us on Sunday, June 21st for the Raymond James Father’s Day Walk / Run for Prostate Cancer!

Raymond James Father’s Day Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer

We want to send a big THANK YOU to all participants of the 2020 Raymond James Father’s Day Walk / Run for prostate cancer – a VIRTUAL experience. With everything happening in the world today, we could not be more grateful to be a part of a community that has stepped up and exceeded our expectations for this year’s event. Because of you, Island Prostate Centre will continue to provide vital programs and services to those who need them and will remain an instrumental part of the prostate cancer journey on Vancouver Island.

The Raymond James Father’s Day Walk / Run event is held each year on Father’s Day. This event raises awareness and funds for men and families impacted by prostate cancer.

Thank you to our title sponsor Raymond James

Our good friends at Raymond James have matched $15,000 worth of donations this year. Without the support of Raymond James, this event would not be possible. Thank you for making our sixth year together a great success!

We need the support of our community more than ever.

During this crisis, we’re committed to being here for the 1 in 9 men diagnosed with prostate cancer and their families — but it’s not easy. We are a small team doing vital work at a precarious moment. Now, we’re relying on the generosity of our community to help see us through.

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.

THANK YOU TO OUR EVENT SPONSORS

 

 

 

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.”
