The Great Prostate Cancer Challenge
The Great Prostate Cancer Challenge (GPCC) is the premier men’s health race and event series in America. It is an exciting community activity that brings together athletes, cancer survivors, healthcare professionals, caretakers, family members and friends. The mission of GPCC is to raise awareness of Prostate Cancer, raise funds for Prostate Cancer research and provide free screenings for men. The goal this year was to raise more than $2 million.
Chesapeake Urology in Baltimore, MD is the founder of the GPCC and has raised over $1 Million for this cause since 2007. The GPCC has grown to 34 cities in 2012 to help end prostate cancer, a disease that impacts one in six men across the U.S.
I have been fortunate enough to be involved with the Harrisburg, PA race since its inception 5 years ago and with the Baltimore race for the past 3 years as a race volunteer. These races are great events that have grown over the years drawing in more people and more cities, raising awareness of Prostate Cancer and bringing together cancer survivors and people of all ages.
