British Columbia, Canada has over 20 Prostate Cancer Support Groups meet once a month. This Richmond group is found in 2013 by volunteers and focused on providing help to Chinese-speaking men, but everyone is welcome. We speak English, Cantonese and Mandarin, meet on the second Thursday of every month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Seniors Centre of Minoru Centre for Active Living (7191 Granville Avenue, Richmond, BC V6Y 1N9 Multipurpose Room 1 (1033)). Join us for the professional presentation and talk to other men and family members who have been dealing with prostate cancer for weeks, months or even years.

No registration is required. Please swipe your Facility Pass ($28/year for seniors 55+ or spouses) or pay a $4.5 drop-in fee at the front desk when arriving for each session.

If you want to chat one on one with a survivor, you may drop in our walking club.

I believe that if you can't run from it ....then run for it, and that is what I plan to do!
As we move closer to Father’s Day, I am asking you to step up the fight against prostate cancer and support the men you love. 

Would you help our team and donate to Prostate Cancer Foundation BC’s annual Walk / Run for Prostate Cancer?
 Raymond James Ltd. is proud to partner with the Prostate Cancer Foundation BC and Island Prostate Centre as Presenting Sponsor of June 17, 2018, Raymond James Father’s Day Walk/Run in Metro Vancouver, Victoria, Chilliwack, Kamloops and Kelowna.

 HOW CAN YOU HELP?
 Support our team and me and donate to Prostate Cancer Foundation BC or Island Prostate Centre Annual Father’s Day Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer via my web page below.
  
WHY AM I PARTICIPATING IN THE RUN?
 Because this run is for the tens of thousands of Canadian men living courageously with prostate cancer and their families. It’s for all the men who have died from this disease and the families who have lost loved ones. It’s for the roughly 26,000 men who will be diagnosed in 2018 and everyone who cares about them. 

THE  FATHER'S DAY EVENT
 The annual event hosted by Prostate Cancer Foundation BC and Island Prostate Centre, a volunteer-based organisation that represents BC’s prostate cancer patients, their families and communities. Even if you aren’t a walker or a runner, you can still step up and volunteer or consider donating to PCFBC to fund research for this disease that currently affects 1 in 7 men.
 Every donation, no matter how small, will have a significant impact on men and their families dealing with a diagnosis of prostate cancer in BC. 
  
Thank you in advance for your generosity and for giving the men in your life the gift of health this Father's Day.
