“If I had gotten checked this time last year,
I wouldn’t be planning my own funeral today.”

Charlie Pester, Kingston, educator and role model

The Ride for Dad event started in 2000 as a result of that sentence and serves as an inspiration for many people in Canada to raise money for prostate Cancer awareness through local rides. The event originally stated out as a motorcycle ride and has grown over the years to include watercraft, snowmobiles and ATVs.

The first watercraft ride took place last weekend in Eastern Ottawa and there are two additional rides planned: Jul. 28 in Windsor, and Aug. 24 at the Ed Huck Marina in Rockport in Ontario.
