skate for prostate

chipping in to skate for prostate.

guest blogger: keith wegen.  cancer survivor.  community leader. fundraising fanatic.  popchips snacker.

at the age of 44 years old i was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

i elected to have surgery in november of 2011.  due to complications after, i spent 19 days in the hospital battling 3 serious infections.  i had plenty of downtime to reflect on life and what i wanted to do when i fully recovered.  i felt called to make a difference by raising awareness and funds for the early detection of prostate cancer.

i am a very active individual and have been inline skating for 17 years.  in fact, just two days after my prostate cancer diagnosis, i went on my longest skating trek ever, a 60-mile skate from boulder to greeley, co.  i had been planning it for months and wasn’t about to let cancer stop me from doing what i love.

when training for these types of treks, an excellent diet is critical to my success.  lately i’ve been finding myself reaching for a bag of popchips, a wonderful snack that actually tastes delicious too! i was attracted to popchips because an excellent diet will be critical to my success.  popchips is a perfect partner because i can enjoy a tasty snack that’s better for me and continue to optimize my body fat and muscles for the 395-mile skate.

clearly i have a passion for inline skating and now a new intensity for helping others afflicted with this same disease. therefore, my goal for 2012 is to combine these two passions and raise at least $10,000 for the prostate conditions education council (pcec), based in centennial, co.  september is prostate cancer awareness month, so on september 7th i plan to start at the wyoming border and inline skate to the oklahoma border, arriving on or about september 13th, 2012.
