Lions Club of Grand Cayman
PACCE - Prostate And Colon Cancer Event
Over the past 5 years the main focus of PACCE has been to educate the people of the Cayman Islands, primarily men on the effects and prevention of prostate, colon and testicular cancer. We have seen the awareness level grow from year to year, and the myths that have prevented many men from getting checked are becoming less.
One of our Past President’s, Lion Delano Hislop lost his battle to Colon Cancer in January 2011. In honor of his courageous fight and to bring more awareness particularly to the men in our community regarding the epidemic called cancer, the Club decided to host the Delano Hislop Memorial Journey For Life.
Participants are asked to pay CI$25.00 registration fee and are encouraged to obtain additional monetary sponsors for their 15 mile Journey challenge. This year participants will have the option to walk 5, 10 or 15 miles. The journey is not only physical challenging, but it challenges one mentally and psychologically.
Annually we have raised approximately CI$40,000. This year 35% of the funds raised will be donated to the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and 35% to Cayman Islands HospiceCare. The remaining 30% will be used by our club to fund various awareness meetings and related club activities
