Did you know that every 5 MINUTES 2 MEN are diagnosed with PROSTATE CANCER?
Join us on Father's Day for our annual Father's Day Prost8K Run, Sunday June 16, 2013.
All proceeds from this event go to fund the 6th Annual FREE Prostate Cancer Screening Event we (the Oregon Urology Foundation) host with KEZI-9 at Valley River Center September 18-19, 2013
~We screened nearly 1000 men in two days FREE of charge!~
The 8K event is flat, fast and scenic, starting at the Oregon Urology Institute, looping behind Gateway Mall, crossing over I-5 via the new bike bridge, covering a loop through the surrounding neighborhoods to the west of I-5, crosses back over the bridge and finishes at Gateway Mall. The 5K walk follows the same route; however has an earlier turn-around in the neighborhoods. Course Map
