Run With Dad is a community-based charity event, aimed at raising money and awareness of prostate cancer.
The Darwin and Mt Isa events are organised by a dedicated committee who give up their time for a cause which they feel very passionate about – about raising awareness of this disease and giving back to the community.
Run With Dad founder, Katie Woolf, sadly lost her father to prostate cancer in 2014. Katie says “I realised just how prevalent the disease is within the community. I also noticed that men did not openly speak about prostate cancer it in the same open way we speak about other forms of cancer. Run with Dad, breaks down these barriers and encourages men to get tested.”
The members of the Run With Dad committee each bring their own set of skills and experience to help create this wonderful event. The event is sponsored by an equally fantastic group of local organisations and businesses.
