Blue Ribbon Prostate Cancer Run To Hold December 9 at New Location – Organizers
Blue Ribbon Prostate Cancer 5K Run organized by the Greater Long Island Running Club in New York is now to hold on December 9. This is a shift from the old date from which the event was postponed.
Apart from the shift in the date, there is also a shift in the location. The event will now hold at a new location, Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, 7800 Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury.
This event is one of the many ways that are being implored to raise awareness about prostate cancer and to show support for those who are affected. Participants at the 5K run are expected to be athletes, caretakers, cancer survivors, family members, friends, physicians, etc. All participants are expected to run the pathways of the golf course.
The event is not all about running because there is going to be free prostate screening for men onsite the event. This will help men to know their status and possibly make the decisions about treatments.
Prostate cancer is a cancer that originates from the prostate gland — a walnut size tissue located near the bladder of men. This organ helps in the production of seminal fluid that transports sperm during sexual intercourse.
Cancer of the prostate would be diagnosed in almost 250000 men in the United States this year, and about 29,000 may die from it according to statistics from the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
The 5K run for prostate cancer organized by the Greater Long Island Running Club (GLIRC) is an annual event and partners to the event include Integrated Medical Foundation (IMF), Town of Oyster Bay Parks Department, and the Advanced Radiation Centers of NY. Awards will be presented in different categories during the event.
The Blue Ribbon Run for Prostate Cancer (BRRPC) affords you the opportunity to support the prostate cancer course. You can sign up for the event not a glirc.org. It promises to be one of the most exciting races of the year. For more information on this yearly prostate cancer event and how you can participate, visit glirc.org.
