The PROCURE Tour du Courage
In order to increase prostate cancer awareness, PROCURE organizes several signature events throughout the year. Every day in Quebec, 12 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. Given the magnitude of this statistic, the PROCURE Tour du Courage is a major challenge which is somehow reminiscent of the struggle faced by men with prostate cancer and their families. The idea of the PROCURE Tour du Courage was born from the desire to educate men about prostate cancer through a major cycling event. The goal of each participant is indeed to encourage men with prostate cancer to face their very own challenge.
In 2019, come and pedal for the cause
The 10th edition of the Tour du Courage PROCURE will take place on June 16, 2019 on Father’s Day. In recognition of the 12 men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer every day in Quebec, cyclists will be challenged to climb up to 12 times Mount Royal! But you have the option of choosing your own personal challenge at registration, and are free to increase or decrease your number of ascents on the day of the event. The cycling event will take place on the Camillien-Houde, a circuit known both by amateur and professional cyclists.
