Event Details

On September 17, 2022 at 7:00 AM, we will host a 15K prostate cancer run presented by Omega Mu Mu Fraternity. The theme of our run is "Run For Your Prostate".  We are a nonprofit organization with emphasis on helping the community through leadership projects, strategic tasks, and supporting local business entities. We are hoping to raise a substantial amount of funds for helping individuals and businesses dealing with prostate cancer. A portion of the funds from this event will be used to provide free PSA tests to men that don't have insurance and can't afford the test.

Too many men will hear the words “You have prostate cancer” in this calendar year. Our goal is to increase the recognition, discussion, education, and promotion of yearly screenings for prostate cancer. According to the latest prostate cancer statistics from the National Cancer Institute, about 240,000 men will receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer, and about 33,000 men will die of the disease. Overall, about 17%, or 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.  More than 2.5 million men in America are now living with a diagnosis of prostate cancer. Reports show that prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States, accounting for about 11% of cancer related deaths in men.   The American Cancer Society estimates that this year 136,830 people will be diagnosed and 50,310 will die from this disease.

Thank you in advance for being a partner for something that is so important to our health!
