The Prostate Cancer Foundation will honor 76ers managing owner Josh Harris during the 11th annual Philadelphia PCF fundraiser on Oct. 2. The team also announced Thursday that it will partner with the organization.

“Having lost my father to prostate cancer, this is a cause that is very personal to me,” Harris said in a statement. It is “one that fuels my desire to support men's health initiatives and encourage healthy lifestyle, fitness and nutritional choices. And I will certainly continue to provide the resources necessary in the fight for a cure."

The PCF is the leading philanthropic organization for raising money and prostate cancer research.  Julius “Dr.J” Erving, the Sixers strategic advisor and former great, will make a special appearance at the fundraiser.
