1400 Miles uses a bike and a beer to spark difficult conversations with stubborn guys about prostate health.
PROSTATE CANCER IS THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF CANCER DEATH IN AMERICAN MEN and is largely preventable. Prevention is easy, but it starts with being comfortable talking about it and getting tested.
1400 Miles is a non-profit that probes the conversation on prostate health. As a organization, we are raising money in efforts to engage male audiences through content-based strategies using bikes and beer as the catalyst to be proactive about prostate health. 1400 Miles serves both as a “get checked” pre-diagnosis and a “first response” post-diagnosis source of positive, inspiring stories.
In 2015, we are working to get 1400 Men checked for prostate cancer! We will be hosting FREE PSA blood tests during our Community Rides. Also, we are currently working out details for a 4-day Men's Health Screening in Denver with our partners Pints for Prostates and Prostate Conditions Education Council (PCEC). More details coming soon!
Want to get involved? You can sign up for The Big Ride, participate in a Community Ride (dates and locations will be announced soon!), attend the events, support a Big Ride Rider or a Team!
