Colorado Cancer Research Program Will Host Golf Event to 'Drive' the Message that Clinical Trials Play a Vital Role in the Quest to Find a Cure for Cancer
Date:4/28/2008

DENVER, April 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Colorado Cancer Research Program (CCRP) invites golfers to participate in its second annual "Drive for a Cure" Golf Tournament on May 19 at the Valley Country Club, 14601 Country Club Drive, Aurora. The private club is one of Denver's premier golf courses and has been the home to major events such as the Colorado Women's Open. The club can also boast that two of its professional golfers have been inducted into the Colorado Hall of Fame.

By hosting this tournament, CCRP hopes to raise funds for clinical research and heighten public awareness of the role that clinical trials can play in helping those dealing with cancer today and those who may develop cancer in the future. Ultimately, a clinical trial may prove to be the vehicle that identifies a cure for the disease.

The benefits of clinical trials with CCRP are threefold: Firstly, they offer patients throughout Colorado access to the newest advancements in medical science, while continuing to offer the benefits of standard care. Secondly, they gauge the effectiveness of new approaches in treating a cancer, controlling the side effects of chemotherapy, or perhaps preventing a cancer altogether. Thirdly, they produce solid evidence regarding the safety and effectiveness of drugs that are still under evaluation. Proceeds from this year's golf tournament will directly benefit those affected by cancer in Colorado.

"Cancer research is crucial. I'm not sure there is anyone out there who has not been personally and deeply affected by cancer. I've lost two aunts and an uncle to the disease. My office manager lost her mother to it just last year and her father is battling it now," noted Nathan Mendel, owner of Mendel & Company Construction and a sponsor of the event. "This is an event and a cause that I am proud to sponsor."

The cost of the event is $185 per player. Golfers without a foursome will be placed into teams of four. Fees include gree
