About the event

Cruisin’ for a Cure was started in 1999 by Debbie Baker whose husband  was diagnosed with prostate cancer and lost his life in 2009 from this  illness. It became and continues to be Debbie’s passion to do something  for our men by bringing awareness of prostate cancer to help save their  lives through the offering of free prostate screening at the event.    Over the past 20+ years we have tested well over 15,000 men and saved  more than 4,000+ men who would have never known they had a suspicious  lump or prostate cancer. As Debbie tells the men, “you take care of your  cars, you need to take care of your body. “ We are very grateful to  continue offering our free prostate screening to men 40 years and older.  It is a simple blood test. We also offer the DRE (digital rectal exam).  The testing results are sent to the KSK Cancer Center of Irvine where  Dr. Tokida continues tracking all of the men over the years, as well as  all the new men that take the advantage of the testing each year. The  results are confidentially sent out within 7-10 days after the event  from Dr. Tokida’s office. Dr. Tokida has been tracking returning  participants each year and will personally call anyone that has a rise  in their PSA, or a new participant that may have an elevated PSA.

Cruisin’ for a Cure is the world’s largest one-day charity car show with  over 3,000 vehicles on display and over 150+vendors and exhibitors.  Owners of the vehicles can cruise through the OCFair & Event Center  for 1.5 miles and/or park to just display their vehicles. The logistics,  marketing, and organization of the show is all handled by volunteers  dedicated to our cause of saving our men from prostate cancer. Be  assured that your participation in the event and any donations go  directly to prostate cancer research at the KSK Cancer Center of Irvine  to help find a cure!
