Events and Opportunities
SET the PACE for Prostate Cancer 5K
The 4th annual SET the PACE for Prostate Cancer 5K will be held in Stapleton Central Park.
A men’s health event that celebrates fathers, husbands, sons and brothers by increasing awareness of prostate cancer! SET the PACE will be a family fun event with free BBQ, a beer garden, awards for the top finishers and top fundraisers, as well as a exciting expo with numerous giveaways and fun provided by our generous sponsors.
Program in a Box
Program in a Box is a prostate cancer awareness campaign, which includes fun dress-up days perfect for every group or organization. The program is just as it sounds; PCEC will send you everything you will need in a box to put on a low maintenance but significant program in your workplace, church, school, meeting, etc. The goal of Program in a Box is to help make topics such as men’s health and prostate cancer less taboo and a common conversation, no matter if you are male or female.
Examples of Programs include:
• “Blue Day” – Dress in all blue for the blue ribbon of prostate cancer.
• “Blue Jeans for Blue Ribbons” – Allow your employees to wear jeans on a weekday to work.
• “Commando Day” – Less is more as you show your support for the taboo topic of prostate cancer.
