About 14 percent of men will receive a prostate cancer diagnosis at some point in their life. The disease can be debilitating and even deadly if not properly treated. To address this alarming statistic, the largest one-day charity car show, Cruisin’ for a Cure, will bring more than 3,000 vehicles to the Orange County Fairgrounds to bring awareness, provide resources and raise money for the cause.

Cruisin’ for a Cure is not only raising money to help find a cure for the disease that affects only men, it is providing free blood tests that will offer insight into whether prostate cancer may be present. At last year’s event, more than 1,000 men were tested and 144 had test results that suggested they should see a doctor for further testing. As with any cancer, it is very important to catch the disease at an early stage of progression in order to better address it. Catching cancer early increases the likelihood for survival and reduces the risk that lifelong health effects will be experienced. Since the event began in 2000, the lives of hundreds of men have been saved thanks to the free tests.

The Cruisin’ for a Cure event features a 1.5-mile cruise through the OC Fairgrounds and a place to park and show off your ride. All organizers are volunteers in order to reduce overhead and make sure more money raised goes directly toward efforts to cure the disease.
