This year's event begins with a Champion's Walk in conjunction with the Georgia Prostate Cancer Coalition, beginning at Friendship Church and ending at Epps Gymnasium to kick off the event. There will be free health screenings, disease counseling, the chance to talk one on one with a doctor, and even a community clothes closet and free haircuts.
