Date Posted: 
2011-11-16

Vancouver Prostate Centre is proud to partner with Step Into Action to raise awareness of the critical role of early detection, and to raise funds for prostate cancer research.

Dr. Riley Senft completed his cross-Canada run from Cape Spear to Vancouver as a personal quest to save the lives of future prostate cancer patients by educating men on the steps to early prostate cancer detection. He has raised over $475,000 to fund prostate cancer research at the Vancouver Prostate Centre and played a key role in helping to alter male awareness of this disease.

Visit the Step Into Action website for more information or to donate.
