Prostate Cancer Foundation BC is proud to present the 6th Annual Chilliwack Father’s Day Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer, to help celebrate Father’s Day with BC Men and their families.
Every year volunteers come together to raise money to help find a cure and raise awareness for Prostate Cancer. In total we have raised well over 2 million dollars all going towards research, awareness and support for BC men and their families. This event has been held in Metro Vancouver for the past 16 years. This year we are happy to have a similar event right here in Chilliwack for the fourth year. It will be taking place Sunday June 18, 2017. We are hoping to have 200 participants and 50 volunteers. The walk will start at 9:30 AM at the former ASU at the corner of Keith Wilson and Korea Road. It will take place along the beautiful Vedder Rotary Trail returning back to the ASU for entertainment, a free pancake breakfast and lots of prizes. As a sponsor we will include your name on our website http://www.thefathersdayrun.ca/event-details-fraser-valley/ which is also the site where walker/runners can register. We also advertise this event in newspapers, radio stations and TV. If you choose to be a larger sponsor we will also place your logo on our Foundation's website. We will also be looking for walkers, runners and fundraisers, either as singles or as a team to help raise money for this important cause. Please contact us if you are interested in joining us or register at: http://www.thefathersdayrun.ca/event-details-fraser-valley/ (When registering please insure that you register for the Chilliwack event and not Burnaby or Kamloops.) How about you and your staff enter a Team in the event and make it a charitable family morning for a good cause? Can you help us? In 2016 there was 21, 600 new cases of prostate cancer diagnosed in Canada alone. That is 1 man every 23 minutes. Although it's important; this day is not just about raising money, it is about families remembering those lost to the disease, celebrating the survivors and standing with those still fighting. We hope you will be able to help us out with a prize, service donation, volunteer or participant. We greatly appreciate your time and consideration. Please contact me if you are interested in donations or sponsorship.
