SKTCF Raises Over $144,000 to Fight TC While Honoring NY Yankees Roy White at the PIX11/Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation 12th Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament and Dinner

Date: August 3, 2015
Location: Scarsdale Golf Club

The SKTCF announced that over $144,000 was raised to help drive awareness, provide answers and promote action in the fight against Testicular Cancer. Sports greats, television and radio personalities, corporations and individuals participated in the PIX11/SKTCF 12th Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament and Dinner at Scarsdale Golf Club on August 3, 2015. Roy White, legendary NY Yankee outfielder was the Sports Honoree; the Corporate Honoree Award was given in loving memory of Guido Dire a long time supporter of the Kimerling Foundation. A moving video of Sean Kimerling from PIX11 producer Chris Jacobs showed why Sean has inspired so many to get involved in the testicular cancer awareness cause.

The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation especially thanks PIX11 for its continuous support of this cause from the inception of the foundation and for the enthusiastic participation in this wonderful event by so many PIX11 staff. This year, PIX11 Morning News anchor Sukanya Krishnan was brilliant and funny as MC/Auctioneer of the awards dinner.

Attendees enjoyed golf, breakfast, lunch, dinner, live entertainment and contests at the beautiful Scarsdale Golf Club, and the foundation raised over $144,000 for this vital cause.

The Foundation greatly appreciates the commitment and support of each golfer, dinner guest and the sponsors and partners below. You have all contributed to saving lives and working towards a day when no man dies from Testicular Cancer.

THANK YOU for all of your support:

It was a perfect golf day for our 13th Annual PIX11/SKTCF Celebrity Golf Tournament and Dinner. Visit our Facebook page for more photos of this year’s event. Be sure to tag yourself and if you have any photos from our event share them using #celebrityballs! https://www.facebook.com/SKTCF

The SKTCF is pleased to announce that at this year’s golf event over $121,534 was raised to help continue our efforts to raise awareness and promote action in the fight against Testicular Cancer while honoring NY Giants Superbowl XXV MVP Ottis “OJ” Anderson. Many sports greats, television and radio personalities, corporations and individuals participated in the PIX11/SKTCF 13th Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament and Dinner at the gorgeous Muttontown Country Club on August 8, 2016. Attendees enjoyed golf, golf contests, great food, a wonderful auction, live entertainment and photos with celebrities, including with our very own “Mr. Check’Em.”

The legendary NY Giants Superbowl XXV MVP Ottis “OJ” Anderson, Sports Honoree, spoke of his long time support and personal interest in SKTCF. The Guido Di Re Corporate Honorees were the father and son of our long time supporter Guido Di Re, Victor Di Re and Victor Di Re, Jr.

Once again, PIX11 producer Chris Jacobs provided a very moving video of Sean Kimerling from his days at PIX11, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gB_dWgBQ2Vw) showing us all why Sean has become the inspiration behind so many getting involved with testicular cancer awareness. This year, it was our honor and a true privilege to have as MC of the awards dinner PIX11’s Mary Murphy, who co-anchored the PIX11 Weekend News with Sean. Mary, who was very close to Sean and called him ‘the kid,’ has been with the foundation from the beginning.

The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation thanks PIX11 for its continuous and generous support of this cause from the very beginning of the foundation’s creation and for its participation in this wonderful event by so many of its reporters including Mario Diaz and Kirsten Cole.

We would also like to extend our thanks to each golfer, dinner guest and all sponsors and partners. You have all contributed to saving lives and working towards a day when no man dies from this curable disease.

The SKTCF was established in memory of Sean Kimerling, the two time Emmy Award-winning anchor of PIX11 sports and pre-game announcer for the New York Mets. Sean died from testicular cancer on September 9, 2003. He was only 37. The Foundation was formed to raise awareness of testicular cancer and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment. Sean was with us in spirit at this event and would be proud of our continued efforts in raising awareness for the most common cancer in men ages 15-40.

Over the 13 years of this foundation’s existence, we have raised over 1.5 million dollars towards fighting testicular cancer. In addition to the Golf Tournament, the SKTCF sponsors the Annual Running of the Balls, distributes Self Exam Shower Cards nationally, speaks in schools to raise awareness and uses social media to reach the population of young men who most need to know the symptoms of testicular cancer and learn about self examination and early detection and treatment. Studies show that the Testicular Cancer rates are increasing every year and almost 8,700 men will be diagnosed with the disease this year alone. Testicular Cancer is 99% curable when diagnosed and treated in its earliest stages. Although TC is the most prevalent cancer in men under 40, men 40 years or older who are diagnosed with the disease have twice the risk of dying of the disease. So for ALL men, SKTCF knows that AWARENESS is the cure to Testicular Cancer. If he hears “you have testicular cancer” he needs to hear “we caught it early”.

Look for our 14th Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament and Dinner coming August 2017.

SKTCF 3rd Annual Running of the Balls a Huge Success

Print

 

SKTCF 3rd Annual Running of the Balls was a huge success with 984 runners registered and over 800 runners completing either the 5k or 10k run to support the cause - early detection and cure of testicular cancer. It was a beautiful day for the Run on the Saturday of Father's Day Weekend, June 20th on Roosevelt Island. Mr. Check'm was very popular as runners lined up to take pictures with him and post on twitter and other social media.

SKTCF raised over $13,000 from our sponsors and running teams. We thank TC survivor Todd Rosenbluth who raised over $8000 for the foundation and the other great running teams. We also thank our sponsors: Bencivenga and Associates, Public Accountants; Street-Works Studio; the Kimerling Family and Way of Life Athletics Inc.

Importantly, we reached just the right demographic, young men 15-40 who are most at risk, their friends and their families.

Every hour one man in the U.S. is diagnosed with testicular cancer (TC) and close to 400 die each year from this disease which is 99% curable when found and treated at its earliest stages.

Look for our 4th Annual Run around Father's Day Weekend of 2016 (SKTCF website or NYCRuns) and join us to have fun, run and spread the word about TC. A big congrats to our award recipients!
