Prostate Cancer Race Across America in 2012
The Prostate Cancer Awareness Project will enter an 8 person team in the 2012 edition of the Race Across America (RAAM).
The Race Across America is an institution in long distance, endurance cycling. Visit their website, RaceAcrossAmerica.org.
A Few Good Men
Even though there are more new cases of prostate cancer each year than breast cancer, prostate cancer remains virtually an ‘orphan disease’ in terms of national attention and research funding.
The 29000 Men team that will ride the 2012 Race Across America will create a compelling media message that finally will bring the prostate cancer epidemic into our national consciousness.
To be part of this unique, first-ever, once-in-a-lifetime event, you simply need to be able to ride for at least 70 miles each day for eight consecutive days, sleep in a moving vehicle, be ready to tell your story at every media event along the 2,900 mile route, and take part in the team’s fundraising program.
A Few Good Sponsors
The 8 men that will form the 29000Men 2012 RAAM team will need an equally strong sponsor team.
This is event offers an unprecedented opportunity for public recognition of sponsor’s support for the major cancer epidemic afflicting men.
There will be major media events at the beginning and end of RAAM 2012, and the 29000Men team will connect with media at each town along the route, day and night.
Select sponsors will have the opportunity to ride along in the team vehicles, just as they do in the Tour de France.
If you believe your company would make a good 29000Men RAAM team member, please contact Robert Hess @ 29000Men.org, or leave a comment on this blogsite.
