Procure Walk of Courage
The Montreal Impact participated in the 12th edition of the Procure Walk of Courage, which took place on June 17 at Mount-Royal. Every year, this 5km walk assembles hundreds of Montrealers to celebrate Father’s Day, all while supporting the fight against prostate cancer.
President Joey Saputo, the first team and the technical staff, the Academy’s and Pre-academy’s players and administrative employees all walked to raise awareness about prostate cancer in Quebec.
All funds collected during the event are given to PROCURE, the only charity in Quebec dedicated entirely to the fight against prostate cancer through research, information, and support programs for patients – including a 24/7 helpline.
In 2018, 4,600 Quebeckers will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and one in seven men will be affected by this disease.
