Fans for the Cure partners with Walgreens on prostate cancer awareness baseball tour
NEW YORK — Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure on Wednesday announced that it once again has teamed with Walgreens to increase awareness about prostate cancer in baseball ballparks across the United States. For the second year, Fans for the Cure and Walgreens are sponsoring a Baseball Road Trip, designed to strike out prostate cancer by encouraging men to "visit your doctor to check for prostate cancer, get your PSA score and stay in the game."
The road trips kicks off on Father's Day, June 17.
"We're humbled by the ongoing support that our charity is receiving from Minor League Baseball, as well as Walgreens," stated Ed Randall, CEO Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure. "The work being done in dozens of ballparks this summer to educate men about prostate cancer awareness will promote better health, as well as save lives. Many men are unaware that a simple blood test can help a doctor detect prostate cancer in its early stages, when it can usually be cured."
