This Father's Day...Be There



    Walk or run in support of prostate cancer

    CALGARY, June 14 /CNW/ - Dust off those runners, stretch out your calves
and get ready for the 3rd annual Safeway Father's Day Walk/Run for prostate
cancer. On Sunday, June 15, 2008 prostate cancer survivors, supporters,
friends and families will join the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of
Canada at Eau Claire Market - Festival Square and walk or run for the men in
their lives.
    The Safeway Father's Day Walk/Run is a national event honouring Canadian
Dads - past and present. All funds raised support research into the
prevention, detection and treatment of the disease. In 2007, more than
2,000 people joined the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada at
events across the country raising over $460,000.
    Registration for the event will begin at 8:00am and participants will hit
the road at 9:30am. It will be a fantastic morning of fitness, community
involvement and, of course, some exciting prizes. The first ten runners across
the finish line will receive a pair of men's Haggar pants and participants who
raise more than $2,000 will be entered to win a trip for two anywhere Air
Canada flies.
    This Father's Day: be there. Honour the special man in your life by
taking a stand against prostate cancer, a disease which affects 1 in 8 men in
their lifetime and is the number one cancer threat to Canadian men.

    The Safeway Father's Day Walk/Run is sponsored by Canada Safeway, Golf
Town, Mercedes-Benz, Boost, One-A- Day Vitamins, Running Room, Walking Room,
Air Canada, Bolt Supply House, Eau Claire Market, Jack FM and Pattison
Outdoor.
