Chilliwack walk to honour dads

May 5, 2018 by  

Each year, men across the country are diagnosed with prostate cancer, and Chilliwack will be participating in a nationwide effort to both support those affected and search for a cure.

A walk has been planned for the city that will give everyone a chance to honour the fathers and other men who are important in their lives. All ages are welcome, and they can participate on their own or as part of a team.

The Raymond James Father’s Day Walk will follow a route Vedder Rotary Trail so that the participants can enjoy the scenery as they go. They group will set out at 9:30 am from the corner of Korea and Keith Wilson roads. Upon their return, they will be treated to a free all-you-can-eat breakfast of pancakes, and there will also be entertainment and prizes awarded to thank the walkers for their support.

Along with fundraising, one of the goals of the occasion is to celebrate the lives of those who were lost to prostate cancer, as well as salute the survivors and support those who are still battling this disease. Banner printing services for an occasion like this can be sourced from a printer in the area.

This Father’s Day-themed event will be hitting the trail on June 17. Anyone who would like to find out more about how they can be included in the activities has been asked to visit the event’s website.
