The Ride For Dad and it's charitable arm the Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation has a mission to save men's lives by funding prostate cancer research and raising awareness about the disease.
WHAT AM I SUPPORTING?
To date, PCFF has provided seed-funding to dozens of innovative research projects and is making a real difference in the fight against prostate cancer. Many PCFF-funded research projects have progressed to leverage larger funding amounts from government and other sources.
HOW CAN I GIVE?
There are numerous ways you can give to show your support for prostate cancer research. You can choose to make a donation, to fundraise at work, donate a car, and volunteer your time!
Make A Donation
Support A Rider Or Event
Riders are people who participate in the Ride for Dad event and are raising funds for Prostate Cancer. Supporting a rider is easy and in addition to giving you an instant tax receipt, it also saves us administrative costs to help ensure your dollars go where most needed.

BECOME A MONTHLY DONOR
LEAVE A GIFT IN YOUR WILL
Leave a gift in your will with a specific dollar amount or percentage of assets. All bequests for the benefit of our fight against prostate cancer should be directed in your will to Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation. Please see sample wording for bequests here: “I want to give back to the fight against prostate cancer. I became a legacy donor asking that 10% of my net worth go to the Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation. To give a gift at this time would not be possible. However, by making a bequest, I know I’m giving back in my own way.”
MAIL A DONATION
If you prefer mailing a donation, you can simply mail us a cheque and use the address:
- Ride For Dad National Office
424-300 Earl Grey Drive
Ottawa, ON K2T 1C1
OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
GIVE AT THE WORKPLACE
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs by matching any charitable contributions made by their employees to charity organizations. To find out if your company has a matching gift program, please speak with your HR department.
Funds raised by workplace campaigns make an incredible difference. Workplace giving is a great way to support our fight against prostate cancer while building team spirit, morale and camaraderie. Please contact us to see how we can support your campaigns.
United Way Giving
Dress Down Days
Volunteering at local rides or events is a great way to give back. These kind of events require tons of community help. We encourage you to find a local ride and reach out to the event's coordinator, which is indicated on specific ride pages.
