GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO August 1, 2013 – Pactimo, a Denver based provider of premium cycling and triathlon apparel, is excited to announce the Prostate Cancer Awareness Project (PCAP) as their August 10in10 campaign selection. The 10in10 campaign was designed with the goal of benefitting ten non-profit organizations in 2013 and commemorates Pactimo’s tenth year of operations.
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men in the United States, and almost 30,000 men die each year from the disease. Early detection is the single most important determinant of survival. If the cancer is found early and has not yet spread, the five-year survival rate is nearly 100%. To promote the importance of timely detection, PCAP has developed the Prostate Tracker early detection tool. PCAP’s founder and CEO, Robert Hess, is himself a survivor of prostate cancer.
“Bicycling events are a key element in our prostate cancer awareness program and we are thrilled to be part of Pactimo’s 10in10 campaign, and to be able to have our supporters and survivors have the opportunity to wear one of Pactimo’s great designs,” said Robert Hess. Hess noted that “These jerseys will help us raise money to continue our program and, more importantly, they are a gentle reminder to men about the importance of annual prostate cancer testing.”
Pactimo has a history of partnering with charitable causes and has donated well over $100,000 in cash donations. During each selected charity’s month, these 10in10 organizations will be highlighted in Pactimo’s extensive customer and industry communication channels. Pactimo will sponsor a matching grant program to encourage cash donations, and its e-commerce site will feature a specifically designed cycling jersey and running tee to raise funds for the organization.
