WOODLAND PARK, NJ - One in nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, including more than 174,000 throughout the U.S. this year alone.
This November, members of the Woodland Park Police/PBA Local 173 will be putting down the razor and picking up the cause by participating in the Grow & Give campaign with ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer. They kicked off their campaign today with a "before" photo taken of some of the officers taking part.
Throughout the month of November, the team of 16 officers will be working to raise through its team website: https://support.zerocancer.org/site/TR/GrowandGive/GrowAndGive?team_id=6606&pg=team&fr_id=1840.
At the conclusion of the campaign, on Dec. 2, officers who participated will be shaved by Xclusive Cuts owner/barber Pat Frequenza at his salon on McBride Avenue.
