Cancer survivors and community supporters are walking for a manly cause.September is prostate cancer awareness month. So, the United High School Boys Basketball Team, in conjunction with the American Cancer Society, walked two miles in North Central Park as a reminder to get a yearly check up. The coordinator of the event says they had nearly 300 supporters and have raised up to $3,000 for the American Cancer Society.
United High School's head coach says the event hits close to home. "My dad and brother had prostate cancer. They both were survivors of it, because they were tested early enough and it was good to have them around" says United HS Basketball Coach, Archie Ramos.
It's the first time the United HS Basketball Team has this walk, but they plan on making it an annual event.
