A portion of proceeds from each registered participant will be donated to the Testicular Cancer Society. The Testicular Cancer Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to raise awareness for the most common form of cancer in men age 15-35. They are dedicated to increasing awareness and education about the disease and providing support for fighters, survivors and caregivers.
Testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men 15-35 years old.
Each year, approximately 8,500 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer and approximately 350 men will die from the disease. That averages out to every hour of every day some man hears, “You have testicular cancer.”
Testicular cancer strikes approximately six in 100,000 men per year and one in 300,000 men per year will die from the disease.
To better understand these numbers, 1 in 250 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer at some point in their lifetime and 1 in 5,000 will die from testicular cancer.
For all cases of testicular cancer the overall 5-year survival rate is 95% but the key is early detection. When testicular cancer is diagnosed in early stages, meaning the cancer is confined to the testis, the 5-year survival rate is 99%. When the cancer has spread to regional lymph nodes the 5-year survival rate drops to 96%. If the cancer has metastasized (spread) to distant areas the 5-year survival rate is 71%.
There are currently more than 195,000 men in the U.S. that are testicular cancer survivors. Testicular cancer accounts for approximately 1% of all cancers in men.
