The Walk of Courage PROCURE
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. Founded in 2007 by Jean Pagé, Robin Burns, and Father John Walsh, the Walk of Courage PROCURE brings together men who are diagnosed and their families in a festive atmosphere to celebrate the miracle of life and to spread the message about prostate cancer among Quebecers.
Chaque année, des centaines d’hommes et leurs proches se joignent aux membres de l’Impact et des Alouettes, aux Anciens Canadiens et au maire de Montréal Denis Coderre afin de célébrer la fête des Pères pour une bonne cause. Gratuit pour les jeunes de 12 ans et moins, chaque inscription inclus un t-shirt, un lunch santé et reçu officiel pour fins d’impôts.
Each year, hundreds of men and their families join members from the Impact and the Alouettes families, former Canadiens players and honorary president, Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre, for this major awareness-raising day. Free for children under 12 years old, each registration includes a t-shirt, a healthy lunch box and an official tax receipt.
In 2018, come and walk for the cause
The 13th edition of the Walk of Courage PROCURE will take place on June 16, 2019 on Father’s Day. You will have the option of choosing your own personal challenge, which is to walk 1km, 3km or 5km at the Parc du Mont-Royal (Beaver Lake) in support of the fight against prostate cancer.
