Long Island Cruizin’ For a Cure will showcase more than 500 classic and antique cars and offer free prostate cancer screenings for men at their Sept. 9 event in Hicksville at the Sears Auto Center on Route 107.
Prostate cancer was diagnosed in 230,000 men in this country last year and there were more reported cases than breast cancer. The disease will affect one in six men in their lifetimes.
The event begins at 9 a.m. and will feature activities for the entire family, including live music, tutorials on car restoration and custom handbag and jewelry vendors.
Testing for prostate cancer at the event will be run through North Shore-LIJ and only requires a simple blood drawing. Last year, 15 men from the local area showed possible signs of prostate cancer – prevention and early detection can go a long way in saving the life of a dad or friend.
