We were founded in Toledo,
Ohio just a few years ago, by a group of businessmen who felt prostate cancer was
"being placed on the back burner" and more needed to be done to promote and support
early detection and prevention. Not enough was being done to support research to find a
cure or improve tests for early detection.
Our grassroots outreach to work with any
organization with similar goals has increased our mutual ability to work toward
accomplishing these goals as a united voice. Other men’s groups share our feelings and
we work united with them to "get the job done". I hope you find this website helpful. We
have no paid staff and all overhead expenses have been donated by generous contributors.
Our leaders have forty years of business and volunteer leadership and seeks
alliances with like-minded organizations. We are a 501(c)3 and have developing Chapters
in Ohio and Florida, You can get involved as a volunteer advocate in your community as
"one voice for many".
Golf tournaments are our signature event, bringing high net results
and to our fund raising efforts expanding from individual to corporate support.
