We are participating in Plaid for Dad to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society. 

As many of you know Derek Thorsteinson our grandfather, father, husband and friend lost his battle 2.5 years after being diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer. His hope was to have some good come from such a grave diagnosis in helping others detect prostate cancer early and in doing so, save many lives.  

Money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research to improve cancer treatments, prevent cancer and save lives. It provides reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.

Please pledge us to help us reach our fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. 

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your support!
