Description

Please join us April 28th, 2018 @ 8:00:00 AM sharp for the 2018 Omega Prostate/Colon Cancer Awareness 5K/Run Walk. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of Prostate Cancer and funds for Prostate Cancer Research. Established in 2013, Omegas of Greater Little Rock partnered with the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Foundation to start a 5K Run/Walk for prostate cancer awareness.  Both are nonprofit organizations working together to educate about the importance of early detection and promote the importance of getting tested.  Omega Men across the country support the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Race for the Cure annually; now it’s our time to establish a campaign to save men from being taken away from their loved ones by Prostate Cancer.

2018 Sponsorship Letter

Dear Community Partner:

 

It is a rare opportunity to be an integral part of an event that offers not only national branding opportunities and messaging for your company but also helps to save and change lives. That very opportunity presents itself today. The Omegas of Greater Little Rock is a non-profit fraternal organization made up of members of Pi Omicron Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc located in Little Rock, Arkansas. Since its inception in 1946, the Pi Omicron Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. has been viewed as a vital part of uplifting the Little Rock community. The men of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. have been trailblazers in the professional and community sectors across the country since 1911. The organization was created and strives to live by its four cardinal principles Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift.

 

We invite you to partner with us for the Omega Prostate/Colon Cancer Awareness 5K run/walk to be held in Little Rock, Arkansas on April 28, 2018. The men of Omegas of Greater Little Rock have partnered with the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Foundation and the American Cancer Society for this event to support Prostate Cancer and Colon Cancer awareness. Too many men will hear the words “You have prostate cancer” in this calendar year. Our goal is to increase the recognition, discussion, education, and promotion of yearly screenings for prostate and Colon cancer. According to the latest prostate cancer statistics from the National Cancer Institute, about 240,000 men will receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer, and about 33,000 men will die of the disease. Overall, about 17%, or 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.  More than 2.5 million men in America are now living with a diagnosis of prostate cancer. Reports show that prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States, accounting for about 11% of cancer related deaths in men.  Colon Cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the United States.  The American Cancer Society estimates that this year 136,830 people will be diagnosed and 50,310 will die from this disease.

 

Your corporate support will play an immeasurable role in increasing awareness, education and action concerning prostate and colon cancer. We plan to gradually expand this event nationwide through media coverage, notable sponsorships, and through other Omega Chapters partnering with Cancer Organizations in other states. We are preparing for gradual growth as we have created the website www.omegas4pca.org which will constantly be updated. We are honored to have renowned and respected local figures ranging from professional sports, civic leaders, politicians, and others taking a prominent role in this event.  We are looking for organizations to become permanent annual sponsors, but will also accept sponsors on a year by year basis, as we understand that the nation’s economy changes organizations financial status from year to year.

 

This event was established in 2013 with focus on education, early detection, and dissolving the fear of the test as well as increasing the importance of getting tested.  We have raised thousands of dollars for the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Foundation over the years as this event has grown.  In 2016, we added the American Cancer Society as a partner to fight Colon Cancer. We need your help to reach our goal of making this a nationwide event.
