North Carolina Prostate Cancer Society Hosts Third Annual 5K Road Race Event
All men are at risk for developing prostate cancer. In fact, one in six men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime and one in 36 will die from this disease. An estimated 240,000 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed and approximately 33,000 men will die from prostate cancer this year.
The North Carolina Prostate Cancer Society (NCPCS) wants your help in the fight against prostate cancer. The North Carolina Prostate Cancer Society will host the third annual Prostate Cancer 5K for runners and walkers in an effort to shed light on the type of cancer that affects only men. The 5K event will take place on Father’s Day weekend, Saturday, June 15th, at Memorial Park in Asheboro. Registration will begin at 7 a.m. and the race will start at 8:30 a.m.
Runners and walkers are encouraged to preregister online by logging on to www.ncpcs.org. Participants will also be able to register at 7 a.m. on Saturday, June 15th as well.
