VANCOUVER, March 7, 2018 /CNW/ - Prostate Cancer Foundation BC and The Island Prostate Centre are pleased to announce the Raymond James Father's Day Walk Run on Sunday, June 17, 2018. With the support of investment dealer Raymond James as the title sponsor, the Father's Day Walk Run is celebrating its 20th anniversary raising funds and awareness for individuals and families living with prostate cancer in British Columbia.
The Raymond James Father's Day Walk Run is held in five locations: Metro Vancouver, Chilliwack, Kamloops, Kelowna, and Victoria. The event encourages communities to come together to support and celebrate the men in their lives on Father's Day. Prostate cancer is the number one cancer for men with 1 in 7 being diagnosed in their lifetime. Funds raised support research grants in the province for improved diagnostic and treatment options as well as to provide support services for those living with the disease.
Each year, the Raymond James Father's Day Walk Run attracts a wide range of participants, from serious runners to those wanting a fun filled family day, to join in 10km and 5km runs or walks. Adult registration is $40 and no charge if the participant raises $150. Kids 12 and under are free to attend and all activities at the event, including food, entertainment, prizes, and t-shirts, are included in registration.
