Walk a Mile in His Shoes

Walk A Mile in His ShoesProstate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men in Canada and affects 1 in every 8 men in Canada. In 2014, approximately 510 men in Newfoundland and Labrador will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, and 65 men will die from it. It is important that men talk to their doctor about their risk of prostate cancer and about the benefits and risks of finding it early. 

Walk a Mile in His Shoes is a joint prostate cancer awareness and fundraising event of the Prostate Cancer Support Groups of Newfoundland and Labrador in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society. Entering its 15th year, Walk a Mile in His Shoes is a pledge-based walk to raise awareness of prostate cancer and to encourage men to take action. Funds raised at the walk are used primarily for programs that focus on prostate cancer awareness, advocacy and patient support. Proceeds also help fund travel so that prostate cancer survivors can reach out to audiences across the province with their important message that early detection could save lives.
