Best Reason to Wear Fake Fur and Run Through the Streets

Main Street Mile

Editors' Picks

On most days, donning an animal costume and running down the middle of the street is something that gets you carried off in a special kind of jacket to a very white, very padded room. But once a year, the Main Street Mile makes it OK. The event is dedicated to raising awareness of prostate cancer by raising money to fund free screenings in the community. Once those screenings are done, supporters take to the streets to run, walk or stumble for a cause. Whether it's the mascot run kicking things off or the first responders race bringing up the rear, it's a parade onlookers won't soon forget.
