This year, the Prostate Cancer Centre had the privilege of participating in the Stampede for the first time, and it was an unforgettable experience that left a lasting impact.
The PCC team expresses our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who came out to support us during the Stampede. Events like the Nutraiser and Hero Day, along with various Pancake Breakfasts that featured the MAN VAN™, allowed us to engage with the community, and spread awareness about our vital mission. The support and enthusiasm of the attendees underscored the significance of the PCC’s work in the fight against prostate cancer.
One of the most remarkable highlights of the Stampede for the Prostate Cancer Centre was the involvement in the Rangeland Derby. The PCC logo proudly adorned the tarp of a chuckwagon, and we had the honor of having rider Chance Thomson as their advocate. Thomson’s presence in the Chuckwagon 101 lap drew significant attention to the cause, amplifying the message of prostate cancer awareness to a broader audience.
Participating in the Calgary Stampede allowed us to reach out to a diverse and engaged audience, creating a positive impact and raising awareness about prostate cancer and its early detection. The organization’s commitment to serving the community was further bolstered by the tremendous support they received during this momentous event.
As the dust settles on another successful Calgary Stampede, the Prostate Cancer Centre looks back on this extraordinary experience with immense pride and gratitude. We know that the connections made and the awareness raised during the Stampede will have a lasting impact in the fight against prostate cancer. We extends a warm thank you to the Calgary Stampede organizers, volunteers, attendees, and everyone who played a role in making their first-time participation a resounding success.
