Wear Plaid for Dad, launched in Canada, is a new campaign to raise prostate cancer awareness. Join people across Canada leading up to Father’s Day by wearing plaid on June 19th.
Prostate Cancer Canada organizers say:
Why Wear Plaid?
Leading up to Father’s Day, a time when the focus is already on men and families, we can help raise awareness and funds to help protect men from prostate cancer - the most common cancer affecting men.So please on June 19th join people across Canada and Wear Plaid for Dad. Whether it’s a shirt, a tie, a scarf, or even a suit – if it’s plaid it’ll work! With just a simple wardrobe choice, you’ll be helping protect the 1 in 8 men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
