What is Operation Terminate Prostate Cancer (OTPC)?
Operation Terminate Prostate Cancer is a fundraising campaign rallying motorcycle clubs (MCs) to join the fight against prostate cancer. Participating MCs, motorcycle organizations and dealerships receive their own custom fundraising page, and members are invited to join and set up their own pages as well. Your group can raise funds in any way that is most fun for your members, including charity rides, BBQs, online appeals, pass the hat, etc.
More than 14 million men worldwide are living with prostate cancer, and every year more than 300,000 lose their fight. These are our fathers, uncles, grandfathers, brothers and friends. We have the power to help by accelerating the research that will cure this disease. 100% of the money we raise with OTPC will go directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, which funds the world’s most promising research to improve the prevention, detection, and treatment of prostate cancer. With an estimated 1 in 9 men diagnosed in their lifetime, we all know someone who has been affected. Ongoing medical advances show we are closer than ever to a cure, but we need your support to get there. Join Operation Terminate Prostate Cancer and help the Prostate Cancer Foundation defeat this disease once and for all.
