Souvenir Fathers Day 5k – Celebration of Active Generations shirt will remind us to keep up our daily RxExercise, as we remember the power of sharing those “Miles o’ Smiles” with family & friends in an ongoing “Celebration of Active Generations”, honoring physically active, strong Dads.


Honor Dads with the joyful heart-health benefits of RxExercise walk or run! “A 5k a day brightens a day”.
