According to a study conducted by the CDC in 2008, Prostate Cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in Men across all races. That same year nearly 215,000 men were diagnosed with the cancer, in which 28,471 men were unable to beat the disease.
Unity In Uniform recognized the need to share information and facilitate awareness of Prostate Cancer and available preventative measures to detect it early. We choose to kick off our efforts to increase Prostate Cancer awareness through a fundraising golf tournament that was held in 2012. The event was a four person scramble with a shotgun start at 8:30am. Portions of the proceeds supported Prostate Cancer Awareness and funded Unity In Uniform's EMT Scholarship Program.
