About This Activity

Saturday, June 18, 2016 is the 17th annual Dad’s Day 5K, 3K and 1K kid’s Run/Walk in downtown Houston, TX.

The event is hosted by the TexUs Too, the Houston Chapter of Us Too International, the international grassroots, registered 501(c)(3) non-profit prostate cancer education and support network. There are 320 support group chapters worldwide, providing men and their families with free information, materials and peer-to-peer support so they can make informed choices about detection, treatment options and coping with ongoing survivorship. The organization was founded in 1990 by five men who had been treated for prostate cancer.

On Race Day, survivors, their families and friends, and local businesses come together to achieve two goals:
• Raise funds for local education and support
• Increase awareness about prostate cancer
Celebrate Fathers Day weekend by participating, volunteering or contributing to the cause. Honor your dad, brother, son, uncle, grandfather and friends.
