    The event, which is on its 10th year, aims to educate and inform Montrealers about prostate cancer, which according to PROCURE, affects 12 men in Québec every day.

    “That’s really been the reason for the walk: to educate people in the city, especially men, to go annually to a doctor to make sure that their PSA is not rising, and that with the physical exam, that they don’t have prostate cancer,” said Father John Walsh who co-founded the event.

    The Mayor of Montreal, Denis Coderre, attended the walk as its Honorary President.

    The Montreal Impact President Joey Saputo, as well as members of the Impact Academy, also joined representatives from the Montreal Alouettes as well as Canadiens alumnus Steve Bégin.

    Since 2007, the Walk of Courage has raised more than $1 million for the organization.

    According to PROCURE, this year, 4,600 Quebecers will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 1 in 7 men will be affected during their lifetime.
