Want to help even more? Take the 250 CHALLENGE and raise funds to help us fight the cause. Asking 10 friends, family members, or neighbors for $25 will help us reach our fundraising goal. This year alone, almost 250,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in the United States. By fundraising $250, you will help fund the research needed to lower the number diagnosed and aid us in finding a cure for this and other cancers. Proceeds fund the CUA Research Scholar through the American Urological Association, provide free prostate cancer screenings to many underprivileged and underinsured men in Baltimore, and help fund several life-saving projects through ZERO-The Project to End Prostate Cancer.
