September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Show your support by taking a simple challenge to eat 30 healthy foods in 30 days.
We know that 30% of cancer is preventable with lifestyle factors. Eating healthy and exercising can prevent any number of chronic diseases, and in some cases, like diabetes, it can even help reverse some of the most dangerous effects. You can learn more about how lifestyle factors influence prostate cancer outcomes.
STEP 1: JOIN THE CHALLENGE
The first step is to join our Facebook* Group. When you are in the group, request your FREE welcome kit!
*Don't want to be on Facebook? Register here and we will send you information by email during the month.
STEP 2: EAT
Starting September 1st, follow our weekly list of suggested foods, or pick your own from the table of 95 foods that we provide. (We will email you each Thursday with the foods for the following week.)
STEP 3: START YOUR FUNDRAISER (OPTIONAL)
Fundraising is a great way to get others to follow and support you in the challenge (as well as raise funds to fight prostate cancer!)
There will be weekly giveaways for everyone in the Facebook group! Win a gift card or other prizes!
STEP 4: SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!
We want to see those photos on your favorite social media! Show everything from prep to cooking to eating. Everyone who completes the challenge will receive a special finish gift to inspire you to keep cooking healthy!
1 in 9 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetimes. If you are African American, that number increases by 76%. We know that lifestyle factors, otherwise known as “social determinants of health,” play a huge role in health risks, health equity, and outcomes. While eating healthy and exercising can’t stop you from getting cancer, it can lower your risk. Whether you or someone you love had been affected by prostate cancer – or if you just want to learn the principles of a healthy lifestyle – you can join in the challenge this September.
