WHO BENEFITS?

Prostate Cancer is the second leading cause of death in American men. In 2015, approximately 220,000 men in the US will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and over 27,000 of those men will die 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 research are saving lives and finding a cure. That is the mission.

RUN FOR DAD is the American Cancer Society's premiere community event to raise funds and build awareness about prostate cancer. Last year, some 1,200 people participated in RUN FOR DAD. The goal for this year is 1,500 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.

Come join us for the 13th annual RUN FOR DAD on Father's Day, Sunday, June 21, 2015 in the beautiful Mercer County Park in West Windsor Township, New Jersey.. Registration begins at 7:15 am with the run and walk starting at 8:45am. 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. Random prize drawings, special goodies for kids and summer snacks combine to make RUN FOR DAD 2015 a positive and fun way to honor our fathers.
