Fulmer hops on hog, takes part in "The Man Ride"

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Former Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer manned up Saturday afternoon for the "Man Ride."

The event, which is sponsored by UT Medical Center, was designed to bring awareness for prostate cancer and took place at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson.

The weekend following the ride, free prostate screenings will be available from 12pm – 4pm at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson on August 21 as a service to the community. SMH-D wants its extended family to stay healthy, and early detection is key. According to Dr. Fred Klein, an urologist at UT Medical Center, “One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, but 9 out of 10 men diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer who receive and follow proper treatment can go on to live a healthy life.” Registration for the screening is required: please call (865) 305-6970 to sign up today.

Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson is a five-time recipient of the prestigious Bar & Shield Award, and a Gold Bar & Shield winner for two consecutive years. For more information on SMH-D, contact Paige Bell at (865) 977-1669 or visit www.SMH-D.com.
