Chilliwack families invited to help fight prostate cancer 

May 9, 2017 by  

Prostate cancer is one of the leading types of cancer in men, and residents of Chilliwack will soon have an opportunity to make a difference.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation of BC recently announced that it will once again be hosting the Annual Chilliwack Father’s Day Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer, and it is hoping the public will help it to meets it goal of having 200 participants. Runners and walkers will gather at the corner of Korea and Keith Wilson roads before heading out along the Vedder Rotary Trail.

Once the run and walk is over, those who take part will be invited to enjoy a big pancake breakfast while they take in the entertainment and have a chance to win one of the prizes up for grabs. Those who are interested can join individually or as a team, and the organizers are asking local businesses to encourage their staff to participate in this event designed to help beat prostate cancer. Banners, race bibs, award certificates and other printed materials that can help to make a day like this a success can be provided by a local printing company.

The event will be held on June 18th at the Colonel Roger St. John Armoury. Additional information, as well as details for companies that may wish to act as a sponsor for the day, can be found on the function’s Chilliwack website listing.
