Lifestyle Management Program in Alberta – TrueNTH

The TrueNTH (pronounced True North) Lifestyle Management (LM) Program is part of the Global TrueNTH network funded by Movember (in partnership with Prostate Cancer Canada nationally). TrueNTH LM aims to improve the survivorship experience for men living with prostate cancer through physical activity, nutrition, and stress-reduction resources (programs and educational materials).

TrueNTH LM includes a free 12-week physical activity and yoga program with classes designed specifically to address the health and treatment related concerns for men living with prostate cancer. Men can also access a comprehensive online portal with tools, education, and home-based programming for help with staying active, reducing stress, and maintaining a proper diet.

In Calgary, TrueNTH LM has partnered with City of Calgary Recreation to offer programs at four different locations throughout the city. Registration is ongoing for men. In Edmonton, the Cancer Rehabilitation Clinic at the University of Alberta will be hosting a TrueNTH LM program starting in January 2016. Future programs will be announced as they become available. Men living in rural Alberta are able to join an online-based program at lifestyle.truenth.ca

All men who have been previously diagnosed with prostate cancer regardless of when they were diagnosed or what treatment they received can join the TrueNTH LM online portal or join a community program. Each person will undergo an initial health screening to ensure physical activity is safe.

Annual Terwillegar Trail Run and Walk Fundraiser

It was a beautiful crisp fall morning for a 10 Km trail run or 7.5 Km walk through the Terwillegar ravine on Saturday, September 29th. The run/walk, hosted by the Terwillegar Trail Run/Walk and the Alberta Cancer Foundation,  is in its 7th year. Its goal is to bring families and friends together to enjoy the outdoors and ultimately raise funds for prostate cancer research.

John Lewis’ research group was out in force; represented by John Lewis, Catalina Vasquez, Arun Raturi, Perrin Beatty and Abbie Coros. Despite the fact that, as one of the run/walk organizers Doug Mitchell pointed out to the participants, John ran in 15-year-old tennis shoes, the Lewis group runners ran well and had a great time!

Funds raised by the Terwillegar Trail Run and Walk go to support cancer research in Alberta. Check out the Alberta Cancer Foundations’ “Dollars at Work” to read about how these funds have been used to support the research from APCaRI members Dr. Frank Wuest and Dr. John Lewis’ labs!

With just over 100 participants this year the 2018 Terwillegar Trail Run/Walk raised over $21 000 for prostate cancer research! You can still donate to this awesome fundraiser, just go to Alberta Cancer Foundation TTRW and click on the Donate Now button!
