On Thursday, June 30th, Ed Randall visited the Richmond County Bank Ballpark for his Bat for the Cure Program. This program was founded in 2002 to increase the public’s awareness of prostate cancer and to educate the American people about cutting edge techniques in treatment, prevention and detection. Prostate cancer is no longer the death sentence it once was. There is a 96-97% cure rate if it is caught early. Ed’s mission is to encourage men over the age of 40 to take simple blood tests that could save their lives.
On this day, the Staten Island Yankees players wore blue wristbands during the game to support of program. Staten Island Yankees fans also had a chance to visit the Bat for the Cure table on the concourse to enter in a raffle to win a team signed blue bat. The Staten Island Yankees have supported Ed Randall and his program for the last several years and we look forward to a continuing our relationship to strike out prostate cancer together!
