Why The Man Run?
Did you know that according to the American Cancer Society, approximately 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, and prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer?
Only about 1 in 41 will die of prostate cancer because if caught early, prostate cancer can be treated. In fact, more than 2.9 million men in the US who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point in their lifetime are still alive today.
In 2017, we raised more than $50,000 in support of prostate cancer awareness and men's health research, outreach and education programs! Join us as we aim to increase prostate cancer awareness and screenings throughout East Tennessee and beyond.
