Ride for Dad 2015

Devoted bikers assembled in the Deerfoot Mall parking lot, revving their bikes wearing leather and huge smiles. They were joining forces to do something they love, while raising money for prostate cancer research.  A cheque was presented to Dr. Eric Hyndman for $55,275 to continue his research at Calgary’s Prostate Cancer Centre. That brings the total to over $406,000 since 2008. The enormous parade of riders ended up at the Max Bell centre, where they could continue to the “poker run” route that rode through towns surrounding Calgary. Many of the riders have had a personal connection to this disease. Thank you to the Calgary Telus Ride for Dad team for organizing and hosting this event, as well as hosting several MAN VAN™ clinics throughout the year.
