Join Us In The Fight Against Prostate Cancer!
The mission of the TELUS Motorcycle Ride For Dad is to raise funds to save men’s lives by supporting prostate cancer research and raising public awareness of the disease. Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canadian men. It generally affects men over 40. Successful treatment depends on early detection. In the longer term, research into improved diagnosis, treatment and prevention will further improve our capacity to deal with this disease. Today, 90% of prostate cancer cases can be successfully treated because of continued research and awareness.

What We Do & How You Can Help!
BlueCircle Insurance is a Platinum Sponsor of the Calgary Motorcycle Ride For Dad, an event held each year in June. This is a full day of fun that includes a poker run, BBQ, and of course awareness in numbers. The ride brings together a wide variety of people in the motorcycle community. The day is not only enjoyable but more importantly, it raises a lot of money that goes to a very worthy cause, providing funding for initiatives with The Prostate Cancer Centre. One is the ongoing research into the disease, and the other being their awareness campaign, which includes the Man-Van.
The Man Van
The Man Van is a mobile unit operated by the Prostate Cancer Centre. The purpose is to increase awareness of the importance of early detection of prostate cancer. They offer FREE on the spot baseline PSA testing at a variety of location. Seriously, this simple 10-minute blood test checks the levels of the prostate-specific antigen in your blood sample and could provide an early indicator of potential problems.
