Recent Survey Reveals Men Willing To Talk About Prostate Cancer, Women-Think Not!

MONTREAL, June 13, 2012, /CNW Telbec/ – Jean Pagé, Robin Burns, Father John Walsh and Laurent Proulx, on behalf of PROCURE, would like to invite members of the media to attend our two fundraising events in the fight against prostate cancer.

For the first time in six years, Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay is joined by television personality Pénélope McQuade to co-preside the PROCURE Walk/Run of Courage, while the PROCURE Tour du Courage will be led by none other than the Honourable Justin Trudeau.  The two activities take place Father’s Day weekend at Parc Jean-Drapeau.

Also attending to lend their support to PROCURE: Joey Saputo, players from the Montreal Impact, representatives from the Montreal Canadiens and Montreal Alouettes.

Prostate cancer affects 1 in 7 men. In Canada, 26 500 men will be diagnosed with this disease annually.  For more information about PROCURE and prostate cancer visit:  www.procure.ca
