For nine years Georgia Urology has been a proud sponsor for F.A.S.T. PACE RACE presented by the Forsyth Area Striders Team (F.A.S.T) and the Prostate Condition Education Council (PCEC). Hundreds of people run every year to raise awareness for prostate cancer by participating in the half marathon, 5k, 10k, and 1m courses. This year, participants will be able to take on these courses and more, in addition to meeting Ryan Hall, retired American long-distance runner who holds the U.S. record in the half marathon.
On top of sponsoring this important event, Georgia Urology is proud to offer free PSA screenings and prostate exams from our team on race day. The number one way to prevent prostate cancer is by staying proactive in yearly exams. With this in mind, Georgia Urology hopes to significantly add to the more than 500 men who were screened at last year’s event.
One in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, and 26,730 men will die from prostate cancer this year alone. It’s one of the leading causes of death in men, claiming the lives of every one man in 39. With this in mind, the Georgia Urology team works hard, inside the doctors offices and out, to lower the number of lives affected by prostate cancer.
Join us on Saturday, October 28 at the Cumming Fairgrounds (235 Castleberry Road Cumming, GA) for this wonderful event. If you would like to learn more or register early, visit fastpacerace.org, but registration is also available on race day. We hope to see you there!
