PIX11/SKTCF 6th Annual Running of the Balls

Sunday, June 10, 2018

Firefighters Field, Roosevelt Island

Every year, for the past 5 years, the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation has worked with NYC Runs to organize the annual Running of the Balls on Fire Fighter's Field on Roosevelt Island, NY.  This year's annual event will take place on Sunday, June 10, 2018 and offers both a 10K & a 5K run that will be fun for the whole family.

Statistics estimate that at over 9,000 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer (TC) in the U.S. this year! The GOOD NEWS is TC is highly treatable — in fact, 99 percent curable — when caught and treated at its earliest stages. 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! Its a great way to celebrate the men in your life and remind them that their health is important to the entire family.

Sean Kimerling was an Emmy Award winning, PIX11 Sports Reporter and was just 37 when he died from TC, just 1 month after being diagnosed because the symptoms were not known to him. With that in mind, we encourage people in the New York area and people around the world to "be ballsy" and check out the 6th Annual The Running of the Balls.
