There’s still time to sign up for the Zero Prostate Cancer Run/Walk-Chicago, which is next Saturday, May 30.
There are all sorts of ways to participate. The event includes a 10k run, 5k run/walk, 1 mile walk and a 200 yard dash for kids 9 and younger. (There’s even a way to participate from afar, Snooze for Dudes. Details here.)
All the action kicks off from the offices of Advanced Urology Associates (1541 Riverboat Center Drive) in Joliet.
New to the annual walk this year will be a performance by former “American Idol” contestant Jimmy Charles. The Nashville-based recording star recently wrote a song, “Superman,” in honor of prostate cancer patients and survivors.
Besides raising funds for research and free prostate cancer screenings, the event hopes to raise awareness about the disease, which strikes one in seven males, according to the event’s organizers.
The Zero walk/runs are held in close to 40 cities across the country. To sign up for the local race, go here.
