Our mission is to ensure the quality of men’s everyday lifestyle and save lives. The Foundation continues to promote awareness through sport and recreation.
The P.C.U.P.S. Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to promoting men’s health and wellness through early detection screening and knowledge of symptoms, treatments, and care.
The P.C.U.P.S program, which is now called the P.C.U.P.S Foundation started in March 2012. P.C.U.P.S stands for Prostate Cancer Understanding Prevention Screenings. The intent of this program was designed to help increase the awareness to men’s health and wellness by providing Prostate Specific Antigen blood screenings (PSA).
In October 2011, Tom Albrecht approached Marlette Regional Hospital about combining efforts to raise funds and create a higher awareness in the fight against cancer. From this meeting, the P.C.U.P.S Program was created.
The first-ever fundraising event for P.C.U.P.S came from a promotional event called Hunting for Health. Since March 2012, the P.C.U.P.S program has raised over $80,000 and has paid for over 1,000 PSA screenings.
Currently, P.C.U.P.S Foundation has awarded grants to six hospitals throughout the thumb region and works with the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center - Urology Department.
