The mission of the TELUS Ride For Dad is to raise funds to save men’s lives by supporting prostate cancer research and raising public awareness of the disease.
Our goal is for men to continue to be there for their families and friends for years to come. The parade of vehicles grabs the attention of the masses and the media on ride day, the research helps find hope for the future and the awareness has the potential of saving men’s lives today.
We raise funds through large scale one-day motorcycle, snowmobile, watercraft and ATV ride events and through ongoing public fundraising throughout the year. TELUS Ride For Dad events take place in multiple cities across Canada, representing every Canadian province. To learn more about a ride in your city, please click here.
Since 2000, the TELUS Ride For Dad has donated more than 29 million dollars to the Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation, charitable number 85133 3179 RR0001, to support prostate cancer research and awareness in the communities where the funds were raised – we give where we ride!
The Ride For Dad is proud to count TELUS as a partner in the fight against prostate cancer! TELUS, named the most outstanding philanthropic corporation globally for 2010 by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, has a proud history of supporting Canada’s cancer causes.

“We are indebted to the TELUS Ride For Dad for the excellent and ongoing support in helping to raise awareness and funds to support our research, as we endeavor to discover new therapies which will ultimately improve the lives of patients affected by prostate cancer.”
