September is not just for back to school its also to bring awareness to prostate cancer; how it affects men and their families, how it is diagnosed and treated currently, exciting new research into new diagnostic tools and therapies and how we can fundraise to help develop advances in care.

APCaRI 2019 Fall Symposium

APCaRI members participate in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer
Well, we did it! Several APCaRI members participated in a 2-day major cycling event called the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation. We cycled 228 kms over 2 days along the majestic Rockies with thousands of other Riders, supported by an amazing team of volunteers. Riding along with 34 members of the Cross Cancer Institute Team, and 1741 riders in total, it was an epic experience! The weather could not have been better, it was sunny, warm and the scenery was amazing.
Most importantly, we raised $7.8M to support cutting edge cancer research in Alberta. We are very thankful for the support we received, which will help us to beat prostate cancer.
If you didn’t get a chance to support one of our riders, please consider contributing to the team’s efforts at our DONATE page.
