Plaid for Dad is a new Father’s Day tradition
Plaid for Dad was launched in 2015 to help raise awareness and vital research funds for prostate cancer. It has quickly become a fun and easy way for Canadians to celebrate dad and help the 1 in 8 men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.Last year, over 600 workplaces and thousands of individuals from across Canada supported plaid through donations, fundraising and events. The Friday before Father’s Day was officially designated as the day to wear Plaid for Dad. Participants celebrated by sharing photos online using the hashtag #PlaidforDad to show their support and help spread the word.This year, we’re going to take it to the next level! There’s going to be even more ways for people to Go Plaid and celebrate Dads. Don’t miss out on your chance to be part of this incredible fundraising campaign!
