Pactimo selects Prostate Cancer Awareness Project as August 10in10 charity.
The PCAP mission is to significantly increase the prostate cancer survivor rate by dramatically increasing the rate of early detection, with the objective that that no man experiences a surprise, post-metastasis prostate cancer diagnosis. They do this through awareness events around the country and through our free early detection tool, ProstateTracker.
One in every six men will be stricken with prostate cancer and prostate cancer usually has few symptoms until it has progressed to the point that it is potentially life threatening. There are more new cases of prostate cancer each year than breast cancer, but men’s natural reluctance to talk about medical issues means that a prostate cancer diagnosis often comes when the prostate cancer is too far advanced for effective treatment. Simple PSA blood tests allow for the early detection of prostate cancer and PCAP believes every man should have these tests (and personally track their annual test results) as part of an annual physical exam that includes a DRE and consultations with their doctor.
With ProstateTracker, men and their families have a simple tool to track annual PSA test results and compare the results over time.
“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. “The 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.”
About the 10in10 Campaign
The Pactimo 10in10 campaign was designed with the goal of benefitting ten non-profit organizations in 2013 and commemorates Pactimo’s tenth year of operations, as well as its core mission of having a positive impact on society.
The 10in10 campaign has been designed to:
- Boost awareness: During each charity’s month, Pactimo will help bring awareness to their cause.
- Generating Cash contributions: Pactimo will match up to $500 of donations made to the charity.
- Help with Fund-raising: Pactimo will design a For A Cause cycling jersey and running tee to feature in our online store for that month. $20 of every jersey and $10 of every running tee will go to the non-profit.
