This Father’s Day weekend, shape up and prepare to celebrate dads everywhere by dashing through the finish line of the Dash for Dad 5k Run and 1 Mile Walk to support ZERO- The Project to End Prostate Cancer.
The Great Prostate Cancer Challenge hosts run and walk challenges in 32 cities nationwide. In 2008, Nashville was added to the roster. This year, the race has continued to expand to the cities of Miami and Los Angeles, and the numbers keep growing! Funds raised from The Great Prostate Cancer Challenge and Dash for Dad races are used to educate the community about prostate cancer, conduct research, and provide free testing.
Those that are interested in this great cause are encouraged to donate, volunteer, and write Congress to increase federal funding in support of prostate cancer awareness. For more information about ZERO and how to support prostate cancer research, please visit their website.
The Dash for Dad Nashville race will start at the Hall of Fame Park–across from the Country Music Hall of Fame. Event headquarters will be in the park. The 5k event will travel up Demonbreun Street, down Music Row’s 17th Street and back up 16th Street. The race will finish at Hall of Fame Park after coming back down Demonbreun.
