BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA – Like so many events during this time of precautionary physical distancing, the Mike Slive Foundation’s fourth annual I’m With Mike Prostate Cancer Awareness 5K run/1 mile walk is going virtual. This Father’s Day weekend, June 20 and 21, lace up your sneakers and join the Mike Slive Foundation in honoring prostate cancer survivors and all the men in your lives by raising money for prostate cancer research and awareness.
Register at ImWithMike5K.com by May 26th to guarantee your shirt and size selection. Registration is $30 ($25 for Prostate Cancer Survivors). The I’m With Mike shirt will be shipped directly to you so you can proudly wear it during your run or walk over Father’s Day weekend. Your support goes towards the Mike Slive Foundation’s mission of savings lives by funding cutting-edge research and raising awareness of prostate cancer.
“Adapting to changing situations is something my father did beautifully well. He was a tremendous leader, especially during challenging times. I know he would be proud that we have found a way to still come together as a community to support prostate cancer survivors and bring awareness to a cancer that affects one in nine men,” said Anna Slive Harwood, Executive Director of the Mike Slive Foundation.“Taking our race virtually allows our friends and supporters across the nation to come together on Father’s Day weekend, connecting survivors, supporters and their families together. Just think how amazing it could be to have hundreds of runners, walkers and cyclists in all 50 states come together to support prostate cancer research and awareness! We will adapt and stay the course, just as my father would have wanted us to.”
The Foundation is asking that during your walk, run or ride that you take a photo and tag the Foundation (@MikeSliveFdn) on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, also using the #ImWithMike to show your support.
