Major League Baseball Pitchers John Smoltz and Derek Lowe Help Raise Awareness Throughout Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
Date:9/1/2009

MORRISTOWN, N.J., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers among men in the United States. In fact one in six men will face prostate cancer in his lifetime. As Prostate Cancer Awareness Month begins, there is increased focus on an ongoing effort by Major League Baseball pitchers John Smoltz of the St. Louis Cardinals and Derek Lowe of the Atlanta Braves, who are spreading the word about prostate cancer awareness through the "One A Day Men's Presents MLB Strikeout Prostate Cancer Challenge."

"Even though prostate cancer is so common, it's not something we talk about enough," said Smoltz. "Through this program, we are helping to get the message out about the importance of prostate health and the simple things men can do."

This is the second year of the Strikeout Prostate Cancer Challenge. During the inaugural 2008 season, the program raised a total of $333,780. Based on that success, One A Day and Major League Baseball have teamed up again to make a $10 donation for every strikeout recorded this season and postseason to The Prostate Cancer Foundation, the world's largest philanthropic source of support for prostate cancer research. To date, this year's program has raised a total of $268,570 with more to come.

To show their commitment to this important program, Lowe and Smoltz are also personally donating $10 to the Prostate Cancer Foundation for every strikeout they record during the 2009 season.

"As a cancer survivor, raising awareness about vital health issues is particularly important to me," said Lowe. "I want to do everything I can to spread the word -- and each time I step on the field, I look forward to throwing a strikeout for such a great cause."

"We are thrilled to once again be partnering with One A Day to support the fight against prostate cancer," said John Brody,
