Catch the Ace, win cash, and help fight prostate cancer
As we head towards November - prostate awareness month - The Ride for Dad has launched a new way to help fight prostate cancer across Ontario, so that men can continue to be there for their loved ones for years to come.
The Prostate Cancer Lottery, Catch the Ace is presented by Ride for Dad.
Playing Catch the Ace is a fun and Covid-safe way to help fight prostate cancer and a chance to win a lot of money too - with weekly cash prizes and a progressive jackpot that grows every week until someone draws the Ace of spades. And you don't need to know how to ride a motorcycle to get involved!
Here's how it works:
1.Purchase a ticket - Purchase your weekly Catch the Ace Raffle ticket until the Ace of Spades is revealed!
2.Pick an envelope - Select an envelope you believe will contain the Ace of Spades.
3.See if you've won - If you hold the weekly winning raffle number, you automatically win 20% of that week’s sales!
4.Pick up your winnings! - If you were lucky enough to have chosen the envelope with the Ace of Spades you also win the Progressive Jackpot!
5.Thank you for your support! - Half of the proceeds will go directly to the charity.
You can choose your envelope at the Ride for Dad website.
Organizers are already working on the 2021 Huronia Ride for Dad. Due to the pandemic, the event - which is held nationally in 27 communities across the country - was held virtually this year. Riders were encouraged to register and ride alone together - following proper Covid protocols - along the suggested route between June 15 and October 5.
Fifty seven teams, 1,340 participants have already raised more than $557,000 and donations are still being accepted online until the end of the day on October 31, 2020.
As mentioned above, Movember - formerly known as November - is prostate awareness month where men and women join together to raise awareness about men's health issues - specifically prostate cancer, tesiticular cancer and men's mental health. For more information check out the Movember Website.
