15 Jun 2014 - 8:00am to 12:00pm
2014 registration table.
Volunteers at the registration table early morning before the rush started.

The 2014 Peel Region - Mississauga Do it for Dads Walk / Run was held at Mississauga Valley Park in Mississauga. The event was run jointly by PCCN Brampton and PCCN Oakville/Mississauga

The weather was gorgeous and with the assistance of some 35 volunteers from both PCCN Brampton, PCCN Oakville/Mississauga and the general public, the event went off very smoothly.

The warmup was led by top Personal Trainer Ian King, owner of Total Body Fitness in Brampton. http://www.totalbodyfitnessandwellness.com/index.asp

David Smith served as our DJ for the second year and young singers Cayla Bruce-Lockhart, Kate Rogers and Sophie Hermann from Modern School of Music in Brampton appeared courtesy of Randy Lynch.

Our MC for the second year was Meaghan Sloski, who was accompanied by her Dad, Al Terry, a charming prostate cancer survivor who recently moved from B.C. to be closer to Meaghan and her family.

The walk was dedicated to all the men that we have lost to prostate cancer since PCCN - Brampton was started in 1994. In particular, we remembered:
- Sean Butterly of Brampton, who passed away in July, 2013. His family came out as volunteers to honour their husband, father and grandfather.
- Al Hutton of Oakville, who died in May, 2014 after a truly valiant battle with prostate cancer. He was supporting other men from his hospital bed. Al's son Steve started the Prostate Extreme Team in support of his Dad and continues to operate events in his memory, with proceeds going to Prostate Cancer Canada and Wellspring. http://prostateextremeteam.com/
- Kim Clout of Brampton, who was taken by advanced prostate cancer in May, 2013 at the age of 42. His family once again came out in memory of a wonderful husband and father.
- Fred Norris of Georgetown, who passed away in May, 2013. Fred was the first Chairman of PCCN Brampton and left us far too soon, in January, 2008. His daughter Christine Mawhinney completed the 5K walk in memory of this amazing man.

Our sincere thanks to all those who came out to walk or run in support of Prostate Cancer Canada, to our many volunteers and to our sponsors:

The 2013 Peel Region Father's Day Walk / Run was held at Chinguacousy Park in Brampton, which was our home for the first three Father's Day events.

In 2014 we regretfully moved to Mississauga Valley Park and changed the name to Peel Region - Mississauga Do it for Dads Walk / Run.

On June 16, 2013, we were treated to a steady downpour that did not let up until just after the last participant left around Noon. But around 100 runners and walkers still braved the elements with umbrellas and plastic covers ranging from ponchos to garbage bags!

Then the sun came out and changed the whole rest of the day.

The warmup was led by Jumba expert Janice Eisenberg, backed up by the The Super Dads from Brampton School of Dance. See the slide show below.

David Smith served as our DJ and a number of young singers from Modern School of Music in Brampton, courtesy of Randy Lynch.

A yellow 1955 Ford Thunderbird roadster owned by Dave Franks of Dave Franks Photography and the Cancer Killer sled owned by Ryan Vollick of Orillia were boldly spotlighted on the hay wagon.

On November 13, a crew of PCCN Brampton members and friends assembled the float for our second appearance in the Brampton Board of Trade’s Santa Claus Parade.

The float was similar to last year’s, being a hay wagon provided by Ed Stewart’s Equipment in Erin and towed by BramCity Transmission’s special events van.

You’ve seen this van at all four of our Cruisin’ for a Cure shows thanks to Bill Stellings.

The hay wagon was decorated with bows and banners and multi-coloured Christmas lights and featured two Christmas trees covered with blue decorations and blue lights.

The parade featured many notable floats this year. While we did not win an honourable mention, our entry was loudly praised by the hosts of the Rogers TV coverage.

We plan to increase the blue light content of the float next year; we hope that you will join us in this effort to increase recognition of Prostate Cancer and our group next year.

PCCN-Brampton acknowledges our sponsors and volunteers for their contributions.

Their efforts will no doubt go a long way towards raising community awareness about prostate cancer and the need for early detection.
