Greeting Cyclists!

Clara Maass Medical Center will host its annual LIFELINE CHALLENGE—A Walk and Ride to Fight Prostate Cancer on September 26, 2009 at Branch Brook Park.

The event began with International bicycle racer Mike Lyach. Lyach has mastered tough terrain from Eastern Europe to South America and helped coach the young Greg LeMond to victory in the 1979 Junior World Championships. But the toughest battle of Lyach’s life was his battle against prostate cancer. He won it with the help of the Cancer Center at Clara Maass Medical Center. Now, determined to help other men fight prostate cancer, Mike Lyach is leading the race for Prostate Cancer Screening and Education.

How To Participate:
