We focus on education and awareness throughout the city, county and state. This year to date we have spoken to 629 city employees, our mayor and the Director of Human Resources. We have asked each city department head to invite us to a meeting to spread our message.  We have spoken at many churches, many small businesses and to fathers and daughters at a Father/Daughter Breakfast.

Major Events:

  • Inaugural 5K Run & Walk for Awareness Benefiting Education – Detection – Counseling for Prostate Cancer Saturday, January 8, 2011 at the Gulfport Casino, Gulfport Beach, FL. Start Time 8:00 AM.

  • In March of 2010 we took part in the Moffitt Cancer Center/ University of South Florida Men’s Health Forum where we reached many men through messages and screening.  We also participated in a 12 hour screening at the Tampa Bay Rays Baseball Stadium, where 685 men were screened.

Major Accomplishments:

  • We have taken our message to more areas and men than ever before.
