3 ways to celebrate Fathers Day and make a difference

For many, the dads and father figures in our lives have been some of our biggest supporters – our personal chefs, spirited coaches, funniest storytellers and our heroes when we need them.

This year, Father’s Day may look different than ever before – but whether you’re together in person or you’re missing him – he’s always in your heart. Show you care from afar and honour a father figure in your life with a meaningful gift that also makes an impact. Your gift will support groundbreaking cancer research and compassionate support programs that give hope to Canadians affected by cancer.

Take part in Plaid for Dad

Plaid for Dad is a fundraiser that raises awareness about prostate cancer and funds vital research to improve and save the lives of the 1 in 9 men that will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

Plaid for Dad is a meaningful way to connect with colleagues, friends or family members over an important cause. On June 19, the Friday before Father's Day, bring your loved ones together to wear plaid. Post a photo to social media with the hashtag, #PlaidforDad. For every post, a $5 donation (up to $20,000) will be made to the Canadian Cancer Society and our work to build a world where no one fears prostate cancer.

By taking part in this Father’s Day tradition, you can show your support for all the dads, uncles, brothers and grandfathers in our lives while helping fund game-changing prostate cancer research.

There is higher demand now more than ever for our live chat services, toll-free Cancer Information Helpline and our supportive online community at Your donation will support these crucial programs that help those with cancer find community and connection from the comfort and safety of their own home – now and all year round.
