2016 Prostate Cancer Walk

The 2016 7th Annual Prostate Cancer Walk

7th Annual Premier Cares Foundation

Prostate Cancer Walk a Great Success! 

On Saturday, September 24th over 450 people attended the 7th Annual Premier Cares Foundation Prostate Cancer Walk over the beautiful Walkway Over the Hudson, enjoying breathtaking view on a perfect fall morning. The Walk raised $75,000 to help Hudson Valley patients, with financial challenges, who are battling prostate cancer and other urological and gastrointestinal diseases. The event kicked off with Kelsey Lee, the recent WRWD Country Showdown winner, singing the National Anthem, followed by the incredible Amerscot Highland Pipe Band leading the walkers over the bridge! Walkers enjoyed a beautiful array of refreshments all donated by local vendors and had opportunities to try their hand with the daVinci robot, speak with local prostate cancer survivors, and mingle with family and friends. In addition, multiple pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies and awareness groups, as well as physicians, were on hand to provide information and educational materials about prostate cancer.  Ken Swain, a prostate cancer survivor, shared his inspirational story from diagnosis to recovery, followed by the ever popular team fundraising awards and raffle!

Premier Cares Foundation is proud to announce its 7th Annual Prostate Cancer Walk over the beautiful Walkway Over the Hudson! We hope you will join us for the magnificent views of the Hudson Valley as you walk 1.2 miles each way, 212 feet above the Hudson River. Spend an exhilarating morning with the entire family enjoying refreshments, entertainment, and great prizes.

Be a supporter of this important cause and sign up to participate in the Premier Cares Prostate Cancer Walk. Prostate cancer is one of the most curable types of cancer, if detected in the early stages.

One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Over 200,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year alone. Premier Medical Group founded Premier Cares Foundation to help provide support, awareness, education, and treatment to those individuals in the community with urologic and digestive diseases. Money raised by the Walk supports local charities and prostate programs to offer free screenings and other supportive services. Come walk in honor or in memory of a loved one.
