ING NYC Marathon is set for November 6, 2011. The ING NYC Marathon is a 26.2 mile course that starts on the Brooklyn Bridge and runs through five boroughs of New York City with a finish in Central Park.
Each year, more than 45,000 runners take the challenge and participate in the ING NYC Marathon. Please join our DASH FOR DAD team for this event on Sunday, November 6, 2011 and conquer this challenge while raising money to fight prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of male cancer death, killing a man every 18 minutes. Yet, there is hope: 99 percent survive when it's caught early. Proceeds raised by the DASH FOR DAD Endurance Team will support ZERO — The Project to End Prostate Cancer and its mission to end prostate cancer through awareness, outreach, advocacy and research. ZERO operates the Drive Against Prostate Cancer—the only national mobile testing program for the disease. Since the Drive began in 2002, we have tested more than 100,000 men and saved an estimated 11,000 lives through early detection. ZERO has also worked to infuse more than $2 billion of new federal funding for prostate cancer research to find a cure.
