Vituro Health and Urology Centers of Alabama Raise Over $10,000 for Urology Health Foundation of Alabama
May 10, 2018
The Zero Prostate Cancer Run/Walk- Birmingham, held on September 9th, 2017 raised over $54,000 in funds to be used for national prostate cancer research. More than $10,000 of the total raised came back to benefit the Urology Health Foundation of Alabama, a local area charity founded by Urology Centers of Alabama.
“Since the beginning of our screening program in 2007 we have conducted over 11,000 screening visits across Alabama. We have found many cases of prostate cancer in men that otherwise would not have been checked. We are grateful to all for the generous grant that will enable us to continue our work,” says Dr. Tom Moody, president of the Urology Health Foundation.
The race had over 150 prostate cancer survivors, caregivers, and loved ones of those affected by this disease participate in a 5k Fun Run, 1 mile walk or the Superhero Dash for Dad at Homewood Central Park.
“Vituro Health was proud to work alongside our partners at Urology Centers of Alabama for such a worthwhile event. A man dies every 20 minutes from prostate cancer and we are committed to raising awareness for proper screening and early diagnosis for men. Vituro Health and Urology Centers of Alabama now offer a non-invasive, radiation free treatment that can provide men a better quality of life after diagnosis”, says Clete Walker, CEO.
