The Annual RL Gant Sports Get Checked! Celebrity Golf Classic. Disney’s Palm
About our tournament
RL Gant Get Checked! Celebrity Golf Classic is a 3 day gathering of current and former professional athletes, Hollywood actors and business executives to discuss strategies to get the word out to men, especially of African descent that we are at a significantly higher risk of developing prostate cancer. Today among black men, 19 percent – nearly one in five – will be diagnosed and five percent of those will die from the disease. In fact, prostate cancer is the fourth most common reason overall for death of African American men. We know that they are more likely to die from prostate cancer in part because of delayed diagnosis and in part because of limits in access to treatment. Our mission is to educate these men about this important health issue on each day and night of the event. Then, to take this message back into locker rooms, onto film sets, backstage in concert halls, into businesses suites, the streets and your homes. This is an opportunity to use your influence to educate all men about how early screening saves lives! To… Get Checked!
We have planned 3 wonderful days of activities and fun, all in the name of increasing awareness for a cause near and dear to our hearts.
