A NATIONWIDE RACE TO END PROSTATE CANCER
On June 18, some 500 Atlantans will join the 20,000 runners in 36 cities across the U.S. taking part in the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk. Consisting of 1-mile and 5K routes meandering through Sandy Springs, the event raises funds and awareness for a disease that affects some 5,000 men in Georgia alone each year. Also included is the 200-yard Kids Superhero Dash for Dads, in which boys and girls ages 9 and under dress as their favorite superhero and race to the finish line with their capes blowing in the wind behind them. Since the next day is Father’s Day, Home Depot is presenting a free onsite workshop where the kiddos can make a crafty gift for their pops. Participation in the 5K costs $30, and both the 1-mile and Kids Superhero Dash are $15 each. – JB
