Rural Ride for Dad June 23rd - Posted: Wed, June 13, 2018, 02:43 pm
As tradition dictates, one Ride starts in Red Deer, and one Ride starts in Didsbury, and everyone ends up in Didsbury!

A lot of credit for raising funds for the Rural Ride for Dad goes to our local communities as well as the Mountainview Colts and Three Hills Thrashers Jr B hockey teams.That's the 18th Annual Rural Alberta Ride for Dad we're talking about, where bikers from across Central Alberta raise funds to fight prostate cancer in our community.

Join them for a fun-filled day of riding with a lunch, poker run, prizes and much more, all while helping raise money to fight prostate cancer.

Registering online helps save administrative costs and allows the volunteers a chance to plan a better event for you.

The Didsbury Ride departs from and returns to the Zion Church. Registration is from 8 - 9 am. Kick-stands up at 9:30 am!

The national average is 1 in 7 men diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lives, with 2 of them dying from it. For some mysterious reason, in our area it is more like 1 in 5 men diagnosed.

Every day, 12 men die of prostate cancer in Canada. But 90% of prostate cancer cases can be successfully treated if detected early!

Every man needs to get checked. Early detection is often the key to conquering it.

Celebrating 18 years in 2018 - 18 years of revving your engines for the fight against prostate cancer across Canada!

To date, the Ride For Dad has raised more than $23 million to support prostate cancer research and awareness!

Registration is $30 and Riders with $50 or more in pledges are eligible for the poker run and prizes.
