PSA test at Brooklyn Cyclones game

On Tuesday, September 26th, Fans for the Cure will help conduct a prostate cancer screening and distribution of educational materials at Yankee Stadium before and during the game between the Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays. Game time is 7:05, with the gates to the ballpark opening at 5:30. This is the third consecutive year in which the Yankees, New York – Presbyterian, and Fans for the Cure have joined together for a September screening to mark Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

 Note: you must have a game ticket to take part in the screening. Ask Stadium personnel on game day for the exact location of the NYP/Fans for the Cure table and screening area.

 All testing will be coordinated and administered by New York – Presbyterian Hospital, whose healthcare professionals will also be on hand to answer any questions. The PSA test, a screening that measures the concentration of prostate-specific-antigen, is a simple blood test. New York – Presbyterian will communicate test results directly to those choosing to participate in the screening.

 Started by longtime broadcaster Ed Randall in 2003, Fans for the Cure seeks to improve health outcomes and preserve the quality of men’s lives by promoting the importance of identifying prostate cancer in its earliest stages. The charity both encourages regular doctor checkups and, in association with our healthcare partners and professionals, provides baseline PSA testing and consultation. The charity also offers educational and support seminars, printed and online reference materials, and referrals to physicians and cutting-edge research – all in the service of achieving best practices in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.

Long Island Company Gives Back by Sponsoring Local Non-Profits in NYC 5K Run/Walk

Untitled

 

A dynamic mix of key community advocates are joining forces on April 2, 2017 in a benevolent effort to support local causes in the nation’s most diverse borough. Long Island-based Vanguard Insurance Agency is teaming up with Queens baseball celebrity, Mr. Met, to help raise awareness and funds for deserving charities at the Generosity Queens 5K Run/Walk in iconic Flushing Meadows Corona Park. As part of its ongoing initiatives to give back to the NY area it serves, Vanguard, a leader in customized Employee Benefits Solutions for businesses and non-profits in the tri-state area, is sponsoring two non-profit organizations – WellLife Network and Queens Community House (QCH). Vanguard has partnered with these two groups because of their wide-reaching, invaluable services benefiting the people and communities of Queens and Long Island.

Being raised in Queens and with offices in Long Island, the founders of Vanguard Insurance Agency have strong ties to both communities and are continuously seeking opportunities to give back. When they learned that the Generosity Series, a host of fundraising events for non-profits, had joined with the Queens Chamber of Commerce to bring an event to the Queens area, the agency jumped on board.
“As a NY benefits company servicing many non-profit organizations, we care about our community, and are proud to announce our sponsorship of WellLife Network and Queens Community House in the Generosity Queens 5k Walk/Run,” says Ed Probst, President of Vanguard Insurance Agency. “We support fundraising events for non-profits because they provide an important opportunity to raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause, while also building relationships that will make a positive impact on our community.”
WellLife is a non-profit dedicated to the wellness of New Yorkers faced with developmental disabilities, mental health challenges and addiction. Its mission is to meet the diverse needs of New York communities, business and society, and to assist those they serve to achieve greater personal and economic independence.
“We’re thrilled that Vanguard is committed to assisting WellLife Network. We’re confident that their efforts will help draw attention to our work, so that we can continue to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve,” says Sherry Tucker, President of WellLife Network.
QCH serves residents of all ages, races and ethnicities while supporting the viability of Queens as a whole. The organization offers its neighbors opportunities to change their lives for the better through innovative programs and to become active participants and leaders in their larger communities. QCH strives to make Queens communities strong, inclusive, and models of civic life.
“We are committed to listening and understanding the emerging needs and challenges of the diverse groups that comprise our borough and translating those challenges into programs that engage, empower, and create a sense of inclusion and purpose,” says Ben Thomases, Executive Director of Queens Community House. “We’re grateful that Vanguard cares about our cause and is helping us achieve our goals.”
Additional non-profits, such as the Queens Chamber of Commerce, will also be participating in Generosity Queens. According to its Executive Director, Thomas J. Grech, “The Queens Chamber of Commerce is delighted to be able to be a part of an important cause and is especially excited because all participants are Queens Chamber Members.”
Sign in for the event in Flushing Meadows Corona Park begins at 7:30 a.m., and the run/walk starts at 9:00 a.m. Don’t miss your chance to meet the iconic Queens mascot, Mr. Met, who will be helping to drive participation and inspire support. The goal this year is to raise more than $50,000 to benefit the various charities involved.
