Kiss Me I’m Irish Run™ is proud to support POP – Prostate On-Site Project – and their mobile prostate cancer screenings. This project is the mission of Gene Felker, a prostate cancer survivor. Through a routine blood test, Felker, a former pro football player and collegiate coach was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1997 and underwent surgery and radiation treatments. While recuperating, he realized how little he knew about the cancer that had threatened his life, and that his lack of knowledge was typical of men his age. To combat this deadly ignorance, Felker and a few friends he had made during his playing and coaching days founded Sports Legends Prostate Cancer Projects, a 501 (c)(3).Their goal is to educate men about the disease and promote early detection.
