Dance for a Cure 2012
On April 9th, in Dedham, Massachusetts, LaBlast, Inc. founder Lous van Amstel hosted a fitness class and a live screening of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” in support of the AdMeTech Foundation’s quest to create Manogram®: Lifesaving imaging for men.
LaBlast Inc featured Dance for a Cure of Prostate Cancer to benefit AdMeTech Foundation’s programs in research and awareness, which are aimed at creating accurate diagnostic tools for prostate cancer, akin to the success of mammography for breast cancer. While prostate cancer strikes 1 in 6 men and has become even more common than breast cancer (striking 1 in 8 women), men do not have reliable technology for early detection and treatment.
Arthur Murray Teach-A-Thon
On January 27, 2012, between noon and midnight Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Boston took dance steps with its 4th Annual Teach-A-Thon to benefit AdMeTech Foundation’s Dance for a Cure of Prostate Cancer. “One in six men is diagnosed with prostate cancer, and every 16 minutes a man dies. There is no community in the United States left untouched,” said AdMeTech Foundation’s President, Dr. Faina Shtern “Arthur Murray’s teachers are inviting everyone to dance for our fathers, brothers, husbands, partners, friends and neighbors who have faced or lost their battle against prostate cancer,” stated Kia Kenney, Manager of Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Boston.
“Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Boston will conduct a ‘Teach-a-Thon’ in support of AdMeTech Foundation’s world leading efforts to improve early detection of prostate cancer, which is so critical for saving lives. Our dance instructors will volunteer the entire day ofJanuary 27th to teach ballroom dancing to the current students and any interested members of the general public,” said Mark Lightner, New England Area Chair of Arthur Murray International.
