Cruisin’ For A Cure is the world's largest one day
charity custom/classic auto show with over 3400 vehicles on display,
over 200 vendors and exhibitors, and a mile and 1/2 cruise route.
Cruisin' For A Cure is a registered non-profit
California organization. All of the individuals that organize the show,
handle show day logistics, and generally help make this event a success,
are doing this voluntarily in addition to their “day jobs”. Unlike many
other automotive fundraising events, none of the money goes to a car
club, promoter, or ”administrative overhead”…. There are none!
Thus, you can be assured that your donation goes
directly to prostate cancer research. That is why we have all
participants make their entry check out to the CITY OF HOPE. We simply log in the vehicle information for the show and
forward the check to the City of Hope
Prostate Cancer will strike over 200,000 men this
year alone. Of these men, over 31,000 will die. That’s one man every 6½
minutes! Husbands, fathers, sons, and brothers…..in many cases it could
have been prevented with regular precautionary checkups.
We men tend to figure, “it won’t happen to me” or, “
well, I’m busy now, but I’ll check into it later.” Later could be too
late. After all, don’t we regularly do tune ups and other precautionary
work on our cars in the hope of preventing major repairs later? Your
body deserves no less. And the truth is, the testing is painless, not
embarrassing, and could save your life. Just ask any of the guys you
will see at the show wearing the blue “Survivors” shirts. They will tell
it to you straight.
Please take the free PSA test at
A simple PSA test, while not the complete answer,
will indicate if there is the possibility of a problem. While you are at
the Cruise, please visit the large medical motor coach and take
advantage of this free test. It is a simple, painless blood test.
This year, over 1000 men were tested at the Cruise. Of
these, 140 were discovered to have a an elevated PSA count of over 2.6 and
were instructed to see
their doctor for further testing. Over the past several years,
over 5,000 men have been tested at the show and literally hundreds of
lives have been saved.
Now you know why we do this show!
