Thank you to everyone who participated in our 3rd annual LA Prostate Cancer 5k, which was held on Sunday, September 16, 2012 on USC's University Park Campus. We are currently working to secure a date for the 2013 LA Prostate Cancer 5k, so stay tuned!
Beyond the five kilometers lies the knowledge that we are serving a purpose: to raise enough money to turn the page on the fight against prostate cancer. With the money raised through the LA Prostate Cancer 5K, we will be able to create new therapies, develop better screening tools and ultimately eradicate deaths from the disease.

More on Prostate Cancer
Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. About one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. However the good news is that with early diagnosis and treatment, many men are surviving. In fact, there are more than two million men in the United States diagnosed with prostate cancer, who are still alive today. With these numbers, it seems that all of us have at some point felt the effect of prostate cancer. Now is the time for us to come together and FIGHT ON. Join us September 16, 2012 for the third annual Los Angeles Prostate Cancer 5K to celebrate the lives of loved ones lost, to renew your personal battle and to stand united with a community of runners, walkers and enthusiasts dedicated to overcome prostate cancer.
