Here’s something you should know: Every hour one man in the U.S. is diagnosed with testicular cancer (TC). It is highly treatable — in fact, 99 percent curable — when found and treated at its earliest stages. In the case of TC, awareness is essentially the cure.
With that in mind, we encourage people in the New York area to check out the first annual The Running of the Balls 5K, produced by NYCRUNS, on Roosevelt Island. The race will take place this Fathers Day, June 15, 2013. Participants are encouraged to donate a brand new sports ball, which will be distributed to needy children by charity partner Toys of Hope.
For more information on the race and the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation, check out the official website here.
