ecause prostate cancer
is the second-leading
cause of cancer death
in American men but is
often treatable if detected early,
urologist Dr. Michael D. Lutz of West
Bloomfield is a strong believer in
and in educating
He was a driv-
ing force behind
of Urology, with
which he is affiliated, to launch a
special nonprofit — MIU Run for the
Ribbon — in conjunction with the
Prostate Cancer Education Council
MIU Run for the Ribbon will begin
with two events during Father's Day
weekend. Lutz is event coordinator.
"By linking prostate cancer
awareness and Father's Day, we
hope men and their families will
sense an increased importance for
this event and its underlying mes-
sage," says Lutz. "Men often delay
taking care of their health, waiting
until they have bothersome symp-
toms they can no longer ignore.
Whether sharing in our cause as a
sponsor or a participant, we can
make a difference in the lives of
those who have been touched by
this pervasive disease and encour-
age other men to be proactive
about their health."
"Night on the Townsend" will be
Friday, June 19, at the Townsend
Hotel, Birmingham. The fundraiser
will recognize prostate cancer survi-
vors and patients, their families and
friends. Proceeds will benefit pros-
tate cancer issues. The evening fea-
tures a strolling dinner, wine, a silent
auction and entertainment. Each
guest may light a candle in honor of
someone with prostate cancer. "Big
Al" Muskavito of the Dick Purtan
Show on WOMC-FM will be emcee.
Tickets are $125 per person.
The culminating event is "Run
for the Ribbon 5K Run/Walk" at the
Detroit Zoo, Royal Oak, on Father's
Day, Sunday, June 21. Guest run-
ner will be Bill Rodgers, a four-time
Boston Marathon runner, New York
City Marathon champion and pros-
tate cancer survivor.
"Spreading the word and
encouraging people to be better
informed can help save countless
lives," says Lutz..
Run for the Ribbon's race direc-
tor, Ed Kozloff of the Motor City
Striders, has designed the course,
which travels through neighbor-
hoods in Huntington Woods and
winds around Rackham Golf
Course and the Detroit Zoo. All
entrants can wear a blue ribbon
and make a tribute in honor of
an individual affected by prostate
cancer. The run/walk is part of the
Prostate Awareness and Cancer
Education (PACE) Race Series,
one of 11 sanctioned run/walks
held across the country.
Sponsorships are available.
