Who likes to cruise? Old Guys, of course. This weekend, we have the opportunity to cruise for a cure. A cure for a disease that is so important to Old Guys...prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer strikes 200,000 men annually...31,000 of those men will lose their battle with this deadly disease. This number can be reduced with precautionary check-ups. Saturday, September 24th, there will be an opportunity for Old Guys (and young guys) to go cruising, check out some cool cars, and get screened for prostate cancer at the world's largest one day charity custom/classic auto show, Cruisin' for a Cure
. There will be over 3,400 vehicles on display, over 200 vendors and exhibitors and a 1 1/2 mile cruise route.
Cruisin' for a Cure takes place at the Orange County Fair and Events Center in Costa Mesa, CA. We hope to see a lot of Old Guys Rule gear this weekend and we would love to see pictures from the show. If you want more details on the show this weekend, visit Cruisin' for a Cure
Even if you don't make it to the show, you can get more information on prostate cancer here
. Please get screened for prostate cancer and encourage the other guys you know to do the same. Old Guys can make a difference in detecting prostate cancer in ourselves and guys we care about.

We like to keep things upbeat and simple over at Old Guys Rule, but somethings just can't be that way. Today, we are reflecting on the tragedy of 9/11. It's hard to believe that it was 10 years ago. The wounds still seem so fresh. Although, there is lingering pain and sorrow attached to those memories, there is also lingering gratitude for the Emergency Responders who jumped in to help save lives.
Not one of those men or women knew what horrors that fateful day would bring, but when tragedy struck they didn't hesitate. Each one jumped in to go above and beyond the call of duty. Even people who were not emergency responders, went to work...possibly inspired by a lifetime of watching Emergency Responders around them. They went into the towers, onto the streets and did what they could. They pushed beyond their limits. Some gave all. We are grateful for their sacrifice.
We want to share our gratitude for the responders on 9/11 and the responders every day before and after that. Each day they face the dangers of their jobs. They put their lives on the line without asking for anything in return. So, for all of the firefighters, police officers, emergency medical personnel and every person who offers Emergency support...Thank You.
Those two little words hardly seem enough for all that you do. However, there aren't really words that can convey how grateful we are. We count on you every day, thank you for answering the call. We realize that many times the thanks goes unsaid. We want Emergency Responders to know that we appreciate you and we will not forget all you have done and all you continue to do. We tip our hats and raise our glass. Thanks a million from Old Guys Rule.
