WHO BENEFITS?

Prostate Cancer is the second leading cause of death in American men. In 2013, approximately 240,000 men in the US were diagnosed with prostate cancer and over 29,000 of those men died from the disease. New Jersey has the third highest incidence per capita of prostate cancer in the US. Even worse, in African American men, the incidence is roughly 60% higher than those of white or Asian men. There is good news however. The 5-year survival rate for men whose prostate cancer is detected early is nearly 100% and 93% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer will live 10 years or more. Education, awareness and personal action are saving lives and finding a cure.

RUN FOR DAD is the American Cancer Society's premiere community event to raise funds and build awareness about prostate cancer. Last year, some 1,800 people participated in RUN FOR DAD. The goal for this year is 2,000 with the continuing challenge to increase participation by African American men and their families and prostate cancer survivors. Proceeds from the event support prostate cancer research funded by the American Cancer Society.

RUN FOR DAD honors the memory of Frank Simms, co-founder of the event, who lost his battle with prostate cancer in 2005.

While there is a 5K run on a USATF certified, traffic free course, the event also includes a 2-mile walk on a park road and paved trails as well as short races for kids.
