Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

President Obama has declared September to be Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. According to the National Cancer Institute, there will be 217, 730 new cases of prostate cancer diagnosed in the United States alone in 2010. And there is only one way to bring that number down: regular tests. If you are a man, GO GET A CHECK-UP. If you are a woman, TELL THE MEN YOU KNOW & LOVE TO GET CHECK-UPS. That's all there is to it. And with all of the exciting research going on right now, hopefully one day there will be a cure for this terrible disease.

In the meantime, we can support & raise money to help the doctors and researches bring an end to prostate cancer. That's why we started Team G Shock, and that is why we continue to run!

Next Saturday, on September 11th, we will run the Great Prostate Cancer Challenge in Nashville. We have a few friends signed up to join us, and are hoping to get many more. So lace up your shoes, and come on out to help a great cause!
