A Delray Beach firefighter is running in the New York City Marathon on Nov. 7. He's hoping his run will help bring to light an important issue. Tyler Adams has been with Delray Beach Fire Rescue for 12 years. He's been preparing for a big race that is scheduled to occur in less than two weeks. "I was fortunate enough to be chosen by the "Movember" charity to run the New York Marathon in the 50th anniversary of the marathon," Adams said. November is a month where men will grow out their facial hair to help promote awareness for prostate cancer. "I don't grow a mustache that well," Adams joked. With his mustache and all, Adams said he has been a big advocate for awareness after seeing men in the department get diagnosed -- even losing a fellow firefighter several years ago.
