Hello [name],

I am proud to participate this year in The Walk of Courage PROCURE for the benefit of PROCURE, the only non-profit organization entirely dedicated to the fight against prostate cancer in Quebec.

I have set myself the goal of raising $X for the cause and I need you to make it happen! You should know that prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. It is urgent to help the men affected and to raise awareness of those who could eventually be victims. By contributing to my fundraising, you allow PROCURE to offer free information and support services to men with the disease. In addition, the funds raised make it possible to finance world-class research projects here in Quebec.

You can make a big difference even by donating a small amount. Click on this link to donate to my fundraiser: [INSERT YOUR PROFILE LINK].

I sincerely thank you for encouraging me and supporting the cause!
