For those of you folks near the 49th parallel. Saturday, June 2nd is our 12th annual Ottawa, Ontario Motorcycle Ride for Dad, this ride raises money to help fight Prostate Cancer through awareness and medical research.

Last year 2350 participants raised over $415,000 for the cause. We have a police escorted motorcycle parade thru downtown Ottawa, past our Parliament Hill and along the Ottawa River Parkway. We then continue on into the Ottawa Valley for a poker run.

This year Freedom Harley Davidson of Ottawa will be giving away a HD 2012 Iron 883 to one lucky participant. This bike, all in, is valued at just over $11,000. The lucky winner will have his poker ticket drawn from all poker participants, winner must be present at closing ceremonies to win the bike, and must have raised $100 in pledges or donations. There are numerous other prizes also.

Please see our website at www.ridefordad.ca Go to the Motorcylce logo/icon, click on it and then click on the Chapter icon, click on Ottawa and you will find all the information there. Cost to just come and ride, get a lunch, play a poker hand for other prizes = $25. You must raise or pledge $100 to have a chance on the HD 883.

It's a great day with an 'army of chrome and leather'. Police escorted Ride leaves the Canada Aviation & Space Museum at 0845 hrs, Saturday, June 2nd.

A bit too far away for me to join the ride, but I wish you all the best. Good to hear there's a recognition of men's health issues being addressed in this notable cause.

Thanks for the encouragement Roadie
Statistics say in Canada alone, 4500 men will die from prostate cancer this year, 90% could have been avoided with early detection.
In the US the number of deaths is closer to 45,000. Please help and spread the word... Guys, GET IT CHECKED. Talk to your doctor.
