SKTCF 5th Annual Running of the Balls, SUNDAY JUNE 18

Print

Did you know that at least one man is diagnosed with testicular cancer (TC) every hour each year in the U.S.? TC is highly treatable — in fact, 99 percent curable — when found and treated at its earliest stages. Sean Kimerling was an Emmy Award winning, PIX11 Sports Reporter and was just 37 when he died from TC because the symptoms were not known to him.

The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation believes that no man needs to die from TC. Boys and men ages 15-40 are most at risk for TC. So, let’s do something about it! Let’s Run With The Balls! Come have fun, run and spread the word about TC.

 

With that in mind, we encourage people in the New York area to "be ballsy" and check out the 5th Annual The Running of the Balls 5K and 10K, produced by NYCRUNS, on Roosevelt Island.

Also FORM A CROWDRISE TEAM, so friends not running can support this worthy cause. Please join the race and have fun for a good cause on Father's Day, Sunday, June 18, 2017.

Grab Your Balls and Run to Roosevelt Island:

The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation Announces the 2nd Annual Running of the Balls

 

New York, NY - Every hour of every day one man in the United States is diagnosed with testicular cancer. But it is not one of the cancers you hear people talking about.  Why is that? It needs to be discussed, as men are needlessly dying from a disease that’s up to 99% curable when found early. The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation is raising awareness of the disease with the second Annual Running of the Balls 5k/10k, produced by NYC RUNS, taking place on Roosevelt Island on Saturday, June 14, 2014. 

The Running of the Balls will be the Father’s Day event of the year, as people from all over the NYC area will grab their balls and run to Roosevelt Island to celebrate Father’s Day early and help fight the most common cancer in young men. Participants will enjoy a great day and support two fantastic causes, as the Foundation is happy to continue their partnership with Toys of Hope. All event participants are asked to bring one brand new sports ball (baseball, basketball, football, etc.) to the event. They may either run with their balls and hand in later, or donate prior to start time. Toys of Hope will be collecting donated balls and distributing them to needy children and families in the NYC area.

Run, walk, or just enjoy a great day alongside the foundation’s awareness ambassador “Mr. Check ‘Em”, and the Male Cancer Awareness Campaign’s “Mr. Testicles”! The Running of the Balls, on Saturday June 14, 2014, is an electronically timed 5K on a USATF certified course. Onsite packet pickup starts at 8:00am. The 5k starts promptly at 9am, the 10k at 10am. The course will feature H20 stations. A bag check, restrooms, entertainment and post race snacks will be provided. Awards will be given to the top 3 overall in each gender, in addition to several special categories. All participants will receive a souvenir “Running of the Balls” t-shirt.
