(Boulder, Colo.) – Newton Running, a revolutionary new running shoe company based in Boulder, Colorado, announces that it will donate one percent of its gross profits to Athletes For a Cure (AFAC). AFAC is a program of the Prostate Cancer Foundation designed to assist individual athletes in their quest to raise money for better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.

"Athletes for a Cure is a perfect match for Newton Running. We are a small start up company taking on the giants of the running world and AFAC is taking on the goliath of prostate cancer,” states Jerry Lee, Newton Running president. “I've been personally touched by prostate cancer and we're proud to lend our support to a cause which is dedicated to fighting a disease that will affect one in six American men.”

“Athletes for a Cure is proud to be associated with Newton Running, a company as committed to helping athletes achieve their racing and training goals as we are to fighting a disease that will affect 218,000 men this year alone,” notes AFAC marketing director, Scott Zagarino.
