Did you know that 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime? That’s roughly equivalent to 1 player on the baseball field. By 2024, nearly 300,000 American men will be diagnosed with the disease. And while the vast majority will have an early-stage, highly treatable disease, prostate cancer remains a deadly disease for many fathers, coaches, brothers and husbands. That’s why the Prostate Cancer Foundation partners with Major League Baseball to raise awareness.

For 29 years, MLB and PCF have partnered to Home Run Challenge to raise awareness and funds to support life-saving prostate cancer research. From now until Father’s Day (June 16), the PCF team will travel to stadiums across the country to meet with fans and players alike.

Thanks to MLB’s ongoing commitment, the Home Run Challenge has raised more than $70 million to advance prostate cancer research. PCF fans have attended more than 500 games in every stadium in North America, seen some of the greatest moments in baseball history, joined more than 40 Hall of Famers, and participated in more than 1,000 transmissions.
