Richard’s Father’s Day Family Walk & Jog

Sunday, June 18, 2017

Registration is now open for the fourth annual Richard’s Father’s Day Walk & Jog at Ulele at 8 a.m. on Sunday, June 18, 2017.

In the three years of this event, we have donated $240,000 to Moffitt Cancer Center and the Advanced Prostate Cancer Collaboration.

As always, we pay 100 percent of the event costs and donate 100 percent of the revenue.

This year’s event still begins at Ulele, but the course is along the beautiful (and completed) Tampa Riverwalk.

You may register on active.com at: http://www.active.com/tampa-fl/running/distance-running-races/richard-s-father-s-day-family-walk-jog-2017

“Richard’s Father’s Day Family Walk & Jog” was created by fourth-generation co-owner and Columbia Restaurant Group President Richard Gonzmart. His goal is to raise awareness of the disease and the need for testing, as well as to help fund prostate cancer research.

We appreciate your support.
