calves and get ready for the 1st annual Safeway Father's Day Walk/Run for
prostate cancer. On Sunday, June 15, 2008 prostate cancer survivors,
supporters, friends and families will meet at BC Wildlife Park to walk or run
for the men in their lives.

Dads - past and present. All funds raised support research into the
prevention, detection and treatment of the disease.

the road at 9:00am. 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
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.
