ATLANTA, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Radiotherapy Clinics of Georgia, a Vantage Oncology affiliate, is proud to sponsor South Fulton Bulls and Barrels Rodeo on May 12, 2012 at Southern K Arena at 3203 Demooney Road, College Park, Ga. Greystone Power Corporation is also an event sponsor.
Bulls and Barrels, part of the Down N' Dirty Rodeo Tour founded by Stanley Knowles, will feature a motorcycle show, barrel racing, bull riding and a full afternoon of games and activities for youth as well. Special Guests Frank Ski of V103 and 7th District Vice-Chairman Commissioner William "Bill" Edwards are expected and proceeds from the event will benefit the Georgia Prostate Cancer Coalition and the Comprehensive Men's Health Initiative.
"We are thrilled to be working with the Down N' Dirty Rodeo Tour again and sponsor the Bulls and Barrels event as they promote prostate cancer awareness in Georgia," said Shelly Glenn, of Radiotherapy Clinics of Georgia. "This rodeo will bring together community members and spread the important message that education and awareness is a key part of prevention."
The Centers for Disease Control reports prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men, and one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society.
"Prostate cancer affects all men regardless of race or income," said Knowles. "We have a strong male audience which attends our Rodeo Tour events so it's a good opportunity for us to educate men and their families on prostate cancer and general men's health."
