Our opening evening, Run for the Ribbon Gala, takes place at 6:30PM on Friday, June 16, 2017 at the Sky Deck in Detroit. “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” will be filled with 250 friends, fine wine and food, dancing to the Ben Sharkey Band and view of the Tigers game from the rooftop with fireworks to follow!
With over 2,000 participants, the ninth annual Run for the Ribbon 5k Run/Walk will be held at the Detroit Zoo on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 18, 2017 at 8AM to raise the awareness of prostate cancer!

New this year: we have added a 1 mile walk to enjoy the sights and sounds inside of the zoo. Participants will enjoy a performance shirt, medal, live entertainment, refreshments and more!
All funds raised support MIU Men’s Health Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the awareness, education, research and treatment of prostate cancer and men’s health related issues.
Suit up and join us in our efforts to support our superheroes in our lives: our fathers, brothers, husbands, grandfathers and sons! We hope to see you there! #SuperheroDads MIURunForTheRibbon.org.
