One A Day(R) and Major League Baseball Raise Over $106,000 to Strike Out Prostate Cancer
Date:6/2/2008

MORRISTOWN, N.J., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Watching your favorite player strike out isn't usually cause for celebration, but for One A Day(R) multivitamins and Major League Baseball (MLB) strikeouts are leading to big wins. The makers of One A Day and MLB announced today the latest results of the "One A Day Men's Presents the MLB Strike Out Prostate Cancer Challenge."

As part of the program, One A Day and MLB will donate $10 for every strikeout throughout the 2008 Major League Baseball season to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, the world's largest philanthropic source of support for prostate cancer research.

"We are thrilled that One A Day and Major League Baseball have come together to raise awareness and funds to help find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer," said Dave Perron, Vice President, Baseball and Sports Enterprises for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. "With these two strong organizations in the fight, we know we'll be able to do even more to find a cure for this deadly disease."
