The Mike Slive Foundation’s fifth annual I’m With Mike Prostate Cancer Awareness 5K run/1-mile walk is going virtual again this year. This Father’s Day weekend, June 18-20, 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.
Last year was the first year the Foundation took the 5K run/1-mile walk virtual, and it proved to be a huge success, having participants in all 50 states. “Last year we adapted to the changing world and were still come together to support prostate cancer survivors and bring awareness to a cancer that affects one in eight men. We had over 600 participants representing all 50 states, and we hope to grow the race even more this year connecting survivors, supporters and their families with others across the country,” said Anna Slive Harwood, Executive Director of the Mike Slive Foundation. “Just think how amazing it could be to have hundreds walking, running, cycling, and cheering across all 50 states again to support prostate cancer research and awareness!”
