Tbaytel Cruise for Dad – Where were you when?!

It’s that time of year – time to cruise. Registrations for the Tbaytel Cruise for Dad are now open!

If you are looking for a family-friendly event that you can do at your own pace this is the event for you!

All ages will enjoy testing their memory or learning a bit about some fondly remembered landmarks. The Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation in support of the Northern Cancer Fund for Prostate Cancer has created this event that will not only get you outdoors but send you on a historic trip in and around Thunder Bay. Grab your bike, car, truck, motorcycle or walking shoes and make a day of it – or do it at your own pace until July 5th.

With gathering restrictions still in place, the Tbaytel Cruise for Dad was created as a self-guided version of the annual Tbaytel Motorcycle Ride for Dad. However unlike the Ride, any vehicle can take part!

“It isn’t June without a cruise around Thunder Bay.” Says John Pascuzzo, who has participated in the Tbaytel Motorcycle Ride for Dad since inception. “I’m proud to fundraise to support prostate cancer care here at home!”

How does it work?

We’ll send you 10 historical photos of locations in and around Thunder Bay. Figure out where they are, cruise there, take a photo of yourself and post it on the Tbaytel Cruise for Dad Facebook Page or email them to us. For every 5 locations you visit you’ll earn an additional ballot in the prize draw!

How do I register?

The event will take place from June 1st to July 5th. Registration is $50 per person, and kids 12 and under are free! Each $50 registration will include a digital route booklet and a mailed package including: a paper route booklet, an A&W lunch coupon, a coupon for free novelty ice cream, a form to collect pledges for the cause. We’ll also enter your name into a draw for tons of great prizes!


We want to thank the many local businesses and restaurants who’ve generously supported this new event by becoming sponsors and donating prizes.

You can earn ballots for these prizes a number of ways:

  • One ballot for your $50 registration
  • One ballot for every 5 locations you visit & post
  • One ballot for every $50 you fundraise

Plus the top 3 pledge earners will win their own fabulous prizes!

Fundraising for Local Prostate Cancer Care!

The Tbaytel Cruise for Dad encourages each participant to create an online fundraising page where they can share their Cruise for Dad progress with their family & friends and collect pledges for the cause.

For every $50 you raise you will earn another ballot in the draw for fabulous prizes. There will be special prizes for the top 3 pledge earners!

Dr. Walid Shahrour, Urologist at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, is encouraging participation, “Your support will help fund surgical equipment I need to eliminate blockages for men who’ve had prostate cancer.”

Consider participating in this newly created event and enjoy a trip down memory lane while supporting a great cause.
