Runners Take Their Mark For Prostate Cancer


BelmontRUN_A_NEWIntegrated Medical Foundation (IMF) announced its 5th annual Belmont Stakes Blue Ribbon Run for Prostate Cancer, in partnership with The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA), the Elmont Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Long Island Running Club (GLIRC).

The 5-kilometer run will be held on Sunday, June 5, at Belmont Park, with NYRA’s Sam “The Bugler” Grossman calling everyone to the post at 7:15 p.m.

Runners and walkers will traverse a USA Track & Field-certified course entirely within the grounds of Belmont Park, crossing the finish line at the site of the 148th Belmont Stakes race, which will be held six days later.

The entire net proceeds from registration fees go to benefit the Integrated Medical Foundation and its mission to promote awareness and early detection of prostate cancer, as well as support services it provides.

Integrated Medical Foundation’s Executive Director Rhonda Samuel was enthusiastic about this year’s fifth annual event and how it will be a crowning moment for prostate cancer awareness and early detection.

“We are thrilled to be staging the fifth edition of this exciting 5K ‘people’ run at Belmont Park, and we are hopeful that it will help us reach our goal of raising funds to fight prostate cancer through advocacy, awareness and screenings,” said Samuel.

IMF has announced that Advanced Radiation Centers of New York, Advanced Urology Centers of New York and Henry Schein, Inc., the world’s largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners, will be among the lead sponsors of the Belmont Stakes Blue Ribbon Run for Prostate Cancer.

Sponsorship opportunities are available at every level. This is an unmatched opportunity to help play a major role in the fight against prostate cancer.
