Third Annual Main Street Mile: A Road Race for Men's Health, June 28-30 Road Race and Free Prostate Cancer Screenings BOISE, ID :- The Main Street Mile, a unique family event, brings much needed attention to a cause most men neglect - their health. About 150 Idahoan men will die of prostate cancer this year, as the state is without a law mandating that insur- ance companies cover pros- tate cancer screenings. De- spite the bad news, there is hope through awareness and early detection. That's why St. Alphon- sus and other local sponsors have teamed up with U.S. Sen. Michael Crapo (a pros- tate cancer survivor) and the National Prostate Cancer Coalition to create the third annual Main Street Mile, a Mile for Men's Health. At the end of the third day of free screening, the Main Street Mile Road Race starts 6:20 p.m. and offers every- one the opportunity to par- ticipate, regardless of skill level. There's even a half mile race for kids - chasing the ice-cream truck.
