Alonzo “Lonzo” Williams, Chairman & CEO of Lyrical Revolution and Councilman Cedric L. Hicks, Sr. are proud to present the Prostate Cancer 5k Run/Walk & Children Fun Run in recognition of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in September. The event will be held on Saturday, September 18, 2021, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at California State University, Dominguez Hills, 1000 E. Victoria St, Carson, CA 90757.
The Prostate Cancer Awareness Walk is the brainchild of Alonzo “Lonzo” Williams known in the hip hop world as Lonzo the Godfather of west coast hip hop. As a prostate cancer survivor himself he began talking to men in the community and recognized a high level of fear, embarrassment, and ignorance when it came to the prostate and the old way of checking it, the D.R.E Digital Rectal Exam, a.k.a., two fingers in the butt. He also learned that prostate cancer is the top 3 killers of black men and also one of the most curable forms of cancer if detected early.
After being coached by prostate cancer survivors he became a coach for men experiencing prostate issues and now has leveled up with the assistance of Carson City Councilman Cedrick Hicks, Cal State Dominguez Hills, and the city of Carson to bring light to prostate cancer in an effort to save lives.
Proceeds from this event will benefit Prostate Cancer Research and Scholarships.
