We're going Plaid for Dad on June 16

With Father's Day just around the corner we've been thinking about our fathers...and men's health.

So, on Friday, June 16th, the VICA team will be going Plaid for Dad in support of Prostate Cancer Canada. Raise awareness of prostate cancer while donning your finest "Canadian fashion." Whether it’s a shirt, a tie, a scarf, a skirt, or a suit — if it’s plaid, it’ll work! Support the cause further by donating what you can. Find out all the ways you can help protect men against prostate cancer at www.plaidfordad.ca

Join the conversation on Twitter. For every photo shared until June 18th with the hashtag #PlaidForDad $5 will be donated by Sanofi Genzyme, Prostate Cancer Canada's official “Sharing is Caring Partner”.

We'll also be swinging by the BC Construction Association office at 655 Tyee Road in Victoria on Thursday, June 15th to buysome artisan (aka fancy pants) donuts to help with their Donuts for Dad campaign. Stay tuned for photos...
