"Fans for the Cure is delighted and honored to welcome these corporate sponsors to our cause. Together, we will continue to spread the word about the importance of prostate cancer screening and early detection of prostate cancer to save the lives of countless men.” –Ed Randall, Founder
Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure is once again teaming up with Walgreens to increase awareness about prostate cancer in baseball ballparks across the United States. For the second straight year, Fans for the Cure and Walgreens are sponsoring a Baseball Road Trip, designed to strike out prostate cancer by encouraging men to "visit your doctor to check for prostate cancer, get your PSA score and stay in the game".
Ed Randall’s Fans for the Cure is proud to be a "Home Grown Charity Partner of Minor League Baseball" as part of MiLB'sCharity Partners Program. To that end, FFTC has spread its twin gospels about prostate cancer awareness and education since 2007 at Minor League Baseball ballparks across the country staffed by dedicated volunteers. Walgreens has served as the corporate partner of this life-saving program since 2011.
As part of the Walgreens Way to Well Commitment™, Walgreens has stepped up to the plate for the last two seasons as a corporate partner for the Fans 4 the Cure Baseball Road Trip, which visits both Minor League Baseball and Independent League ballparks. The Walgreens Way to Well Commitment™ is focused on improving your everyday health through the prevention and early detection of today's leading diseases, like heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

Bayer (Wayne, NJ), an icon in the healthcare industry, is the pharmaceutical partner for Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure.
They have developed Xofigo (radium Ra 223 dichloride) to treat men with symptomatic late-stage (metastatic) prostate cancer that has spread to bones but not to other organs. It is intended for men whose cancer has spread after receiving medical or surgical therapy to lower testosterone. Xofigo delivers radiation directly to bone tumors while limiting damage to surrounding tissue.
Bayer began its association with Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure by helping sponsor our 7th Annual Baseball Road Trip.
