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.

Time: The race will begin at 9:00am

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

Testicular Cancer Survivor Pens Book Based On His Experiences

Print


Fighting cancer can be a harrowing experience for anyone. In 1995, Brian Kemper discovered a lump on his right testicle during his first year of law school. After being diagnosed with testicular cancer, Kemper had surgery and went through four sessions of chemotherapy. Thanks to the early discovery of the tumor, his treatments and the help of his friends, he was able to survive and later went on to become an attorney in NYC..

Twenty years later, still free of cancer, Kemper self-published a novel based upon his experiences fighting cancer and his years as an associate attorney at a large New York City law firm. The book, Everything Can Change, is set in NYC in 2003 and tells the story of Jack Ritter, a twenty-eight year old attorney who discovers he has testicular cancer. “When I went through my cancer fight,” said Kemper, “there were two reasons I made my way through it: I found the tumor early and I had the support of my family and friends. I wrote the book in part to help spread awareness of testicular cancer and to thank my support system for what they did for me.”

The book is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle format and ten percent of the proceeds from the sales of the book will go to the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation.

The SKTCF announced that over $144,000 was raised to help drive awareness, provide answers and promote action in the fight against Testicular Cancer. Sports greats, television and radio personalities, corporations and individuals participated in the PIX11/SKTCF 12th Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament and Dinner at Scarsdale Golf Club on August 3, 2015. Roy White, legendary NY Yankee outfielder was the Sports Honoree; the Corporate Honoree Award was given in loving memory of Guido Dire a long time supporter of the Kimerling Foundation. A moving video of Sean Kimerling from PIX11 producer Chris Jacobs showed why Sean has inspired so many to get involved in the testicular cancer awareness cause.

The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation especially thanks PIX11 for its continuous support of this cause from the inception of the foundation and for the enthusiastic participation in this wonderful event by so many PIX11 staff. This year, PIX11 Morning News anchor Sukanya Krishnan was brilliant and funny as MC/Auctioneer of the awards dinner.

Attendees enjoyed golf, breakfast, lunch, dinner, live entertainment and contests at the beautiful Scarsdale Golf Club, and the foundation raised over $144,000 for this vital cause.
