PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Thousands took part in a Father’s Day tradition along the Ben Franklin Parkway on Sunday morning — the annual Gary Papa Run.

“One in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and early detection is the key to survival,” explained FBPH Executive Director Colleen Daley.
