Plaid for Dad - Home - Canadian Cancer Society

“1 in 8 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetimes. I know because my dad was one of them. Join me on June 17th and wear plaid for dad.”

Eric McCormack from ‘Will & Grace’

You can join the growing number of Canadians showing support for the dads in our lives. It’s easy! Just register your team then encourage your colleagues, family and friends to donate and wear plaid on Friday, June 17

Spice it up throughout the month by:

  • Competing in our virtual plaid for dad trivia sessions
  • Entering your best dad joke to get crowned “King of the Dad Joke”
  • Asking for a $10 donation to wear plaid each Friday
  • Have a best plaid outfit contest

Your support will help fund the most promising prostate cancer research, provide a support system for those affected and shape healthy public policies to prevent cancer and support those living with the disease.
