Support PlaidForDad

Our workplace is participating in Plaid for Dad in support of Prostate Cancer Canada! Leading up to Father’s Day, let’s all wear plaid to work on Friday, June 14th to help raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer; all in the name of helping dads across Canada! Take a photo of your workplace colleagues dressed in Plaid on June 14th and send it to me (Perrin at pbeatty@ualberta.ca) and I will post it on the APCaRI blog!

Please make a donation and get involved. You can make a secure online donation now on our workplace campaign webpage using your credit card. Click here to go to the Team Nanostics donation page.

Also, take a couple of minutes to check out www.plaidfordad.ca, Hill Street Beverage Company, IndoChino, and Head/Penn (SportChek) if you like non-alcoholic beer, suits or tennis, respectively. These businesses will donate to PlaidForDad with the purchase of certain products!
