SU student, testicular cancer survivor will attempt to break self check record next week

SU student Jason Greenspan is hosting an event in which male students can self-check for testicular cancer on Nov. 6. Greenspan, who is a survivor of testicular cancer, hopes to set a Guinness World Record for the largest number of testicular cancer tests to occur at one event. 

Greenspan needs 209 men to participate to break the world record. To participate, male students need to be taught by a medical professional on how to check themselves. The first 200 men to register will receive a free wristband.

The event will begin at 7 p.m. in the Ceddia Union Building’s multipurpose room. The world record attempt will begin at 8 p.m., with featured speakers including SU alumnus Justin Birckbichler and Bruce Levy, a retired principal from the Shippensburg Area Senior High School. The event is sponsored by numerous organizations on campus, including SU’s Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, the Activities Program Board, Ship Dining, the Office of Housing and Residence Life, The Slate, SUTV, WSYC and the Women’s Center.
