A big thanks to all our sponsers and fundraisers!
Our team is made up of a varied group that includes my wife Jean, myself and our friends and neighbours and their friends and families and my cousin Brian! This was our fourth year taking part in the Safeway Father`s Day Walk / Run for Prostate Cancer. It is lots of fun for the whole family - a great way to spend Father's Day. There is a 10.8k run for the serious enthusiasts (and people like me who like a challenge) with prizes for the top three male and female participants. A 5k walk , a 2 k stroll and a tot run for all the l
It was early 2008 and I had just been diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer. I worked for Reliable Parts in Coquitlam BC. Mark a fellow workmate who had heard of my diagnosis decided the Safeway Father's day run was a good idea, both for something he could do with his daughter and maybe to help with some fundraising . He asked our HR to see about getting a team together and I was asked if I would join and since it was in my honor I was asked to name the team. I jokingly said 'Pain in the Ass' and that is how it started.We had 7 members on our team and we raised around $700.00. From that small beginning we grew to much larger teams as you can see in the pictures! We have currently raised close to $100,000.!!
Our Mission is to raise awareness about Prostate Cancer and also raise funds to support those with it and help fund research for this disease.
