An Easy Way to Make a Difference

September 22, 2016

One in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, making it the most common non-skin related cancer among men. Though highly treatable when caught early, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths for American men.
While public awareness of prostate cancer continues to increase, it is still not enough. As urologists, we at The Urology Group feel it is our duty to raise awareness of this highly treatable but deadly disease. One of the many ways that we do that is through the upcoming ZERO Prostate Cancer 10k/5k.
Our 10th annual walk/run will be held on Saturday, Oct. 15, and will feature more than 1,500 participants, along with hundreds of volunteers, visitors and spectators.
Every year, one of the event’s highlights comes when we recognize prostate cancer survivors. It’s always inspiring to see the courage and determination of these men, many of whom are battling the disease with the full support of family members, loved ones, friends and neighbors.
One of the many survivors in attendance this year will be event host Ken Griffey, Sr.
In addition to being a member of the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame, Griffey is a prostate cancer survivor who has made it a goal to raise awareness of the disease.
Additionally, Brad Johansen, Local 12’s anchor for the First at 4 broadcast, will host the main stage. Johansen is the TV play-by-play announcer for Bengals preseason and is the play-by-play announcer in college football, basketball and baseball for CBS Sports Network.
Both Griffey and Johansen will visit with survivors and participants throughout the event.
You have many options to show your support for those who have prostate cancer and those who have not yet been diagnosed. If you’re a runner or walker, register to participate. If you’d like to help, we can always use more volunteers. If you’re simply in the neighborhood, just stop by and enjoy the food and fun.
If you can’t attend, consider making a contribution. It’s simple to get more details or register online here.
Consider this an open invitation to join us. We’re proud that over the past decade, this has grown to become the largest event in the region that benefits prostate cancer.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
