Cancer Survivor Takes Huge Canoe Challenge

Print

 


Surviving testicular cancer often inspires people to do some amazing things with their lives, and this sporting goods store manager in England is no exception. David Sing, the manager of Sports Direct in the Altrincham Retail Park, is joining a team of other cancer survivors in an epic canoe journey from Chester to Liverpool’s Albert Dock, a trip of over 150 miles.

The Great Canoe Challenge starts on September 25th and features five teams of rowers, all cancer survivors, paddling through the Thames to raise awareness for the disease. They’re also trying to encourage more funding into research for cures.

David Sing’s testicular cancer story began in 2012 when doctors at Fazakerley Hospital noticed a pebble-shaped anomaly in his scrotum during a scan. They determined that it was a pair of malignant tumors and immediately decided to operate and remove them. Nine weeks of chemotherapy followed, but Sing has been cancer free for five years and hopes to stay that way.

His battle with the disease inspired him to help fight it, and he’s already raised £10,000 for Stand Up To Cancer with an annual football game and charity auction. Props to him for looking for ways to help other people after what he went through, and best of luck on the paddle.

1st Annual D.C. Running of the Balls, Saturday 9/9

Print

Did you know that at least one man is diagnosed with testicular cancer (TC) every hour each year in the U.S.? TC is highly treatable — in fact, 99 percent curable — when found and treated at its earliest stages. Sean Kimerling was an Emmy Award winning, PIX11 Sports Reporter and was just 37 when he died from TC because the symptoms were not known to him.

The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation believes that no man needs to die from TC. Boys and men ages 15-40 are most at risk for TC. So, let’s do something about it! Let’s Run With The Balls! Come have fun, run and spread the word about TC.

With that in mind, we encourage people in the D.C. area to "be ballsy" and check out the 1st Annual D.C. Running of the Balls 5K and 10K, produced by the DC Running Club, in the Georgetown section of DC on the C&O Towpath.

Please join the race and have fun for a good cause on Saturday, September 9, 2017.

Course: Is an out and back on the Capital Crescent Towpath

Bib Pickup - Will begin at 8:00am at 3700 Water Street
