Best Reason to Man Up

Main Street Mile Turns 10

Staff Pick

Men are known for being total babies when it comes to being sick, let alone going to the doctor. But for 10 years, the folks at Main Street Mile haven't been letting them dodge the responsibility of taking care of their own health. What started as a fundraiser to provide free prostate cancer screenings has grown to include larger health issues while providing 4,221 free screenings along the way. Each year, the culminating family-friendly fun run has brought crowds to downtown Boise to support the mission by charging through the streets of the city--sometimes in costume. This year's move to a Saturday afternoon with a musical party following all the running only made it better. While the manner in which the screenings are done has changed, the overall goal hasn't, and that's worth cheering on.
