The Wilmot Wild and the Motorcycle Ride for Dad - Grand River Chapter have met to discuss the upcoming lacrosse season and how the Wild can do their part in raising funds and awareness for the prostate cancer campaign. The Wild will host the riders, executive members and all of the Ride for Dad supporters during their home opener in 2018 and raise funds through the ride date of June 2 to go towards prostate cancer research at Grand River Hospital.
Prostate Cancer represented 10% of all cancer deaths in men in 2017. On average, 58 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer every day and on average, 11 Canadian men will die from prostate cancer every day
The Wild will also play a part in the Ride itself on June 2nd as the Ride organizing committee has chosen the WIlmot Recreation Complex to be a part of the Ride route and Wild players and volunteers will be on hand to direct the riders and distribute the poker run cards.
We will post more details as we get them and we draw closer to the season. For more details on the Motorcycle Ride for Dad you can visit their website at ridefordad.ca/grandriver/.
