Mangano (center) presented a Proclamation to Rhonda Samuel, Executive Director of Integrated Medical Foundation (IMF) in recognition of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Joining the fight against prostate cancer, County Executive Mangano and IMF encourage men over the age of 40 to have their PSA level checked annually and to sign up for the Sunday, November 13th Blue Ribbon Run for Prostate Cancer. The run, with the help of the Greater Long Island Running Club, takes place in Syosset-Woodbury Community Park and throughout the streets of Woodbury.
Participation in the race will help fight prostate cancer by raising funds for prostate cancer awareness, education and support. Awards in both 5k and 10k races in many age categories will be presented. Free on-site prostate cancer screenings will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. for all men age 40 plus who have not been previously diagnosed with prostate cancer.
