The 10th Annual Omega Prostate/Colon Cancer Awareness 5K Run/ Walk is a race event for which all the proceeds are donated in support of The Arkansas Prostate Cancer Foundation, American Cancer Society and scholarships for High School students.

We are grateful for the continued opportunity to raise money to help these two organization and continue to provide scholarships to deserving high school students.  With  the support of the community, last year we increased our participants to over 267 runners and walkers and we were able to raise $5,715.62 above expenses that has been distributed to support the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Foundation, the American Cancer Society and scholarships for deserving high school students through the Omegas of Greater Little Rock, Incorporated non- profit corporation.  These organizations greatly appreciate the support that you gave to last year’s event.

Too many men will hear the words “You have prostate cancer” in this calendar year. Our goal is to increase the recognition, discussion, education, and promotion of yearly screenings for prostate and Colon cancer. According to the latest prostate cancer statistics from the National Cancer Institute, about 240,000 men will receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer, and about 33,000 men will die of the disease. Overall, about 17%, or 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.  More than 2.5 million men in America are now living with a diagnosis of prostate cancer. Reports show that prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States, accounting for about 11% of cancer related deaths in men.  Colon Cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the United States.  The American Cancer Society estimates that this year 136,830 people will be diagnosed and 50,310 will die from this disease.

Thank you in advance for your continued support to help us knock out Prostate and Colon cancer!
