Each spring, the Regions Tradition hosts the world’s elite 50-over golfers in the first major tournament on the annual PGA TOUR Champions schedule. For the 2022 edition, the Tradition partnered with the Mike Slive Foundation to add free, walk-up prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests for men over 40.
“When caught early, prostate cancer is nearly 100 percent treatable,” said Anna Slive Harwood, executive director of the Mike Slive Foundation. “Early detection is key.”
“I think the tent provided at the Tradition was so important because it was a platform for proactive healthcare,” Chadha said. “As I have researched prostate cancer I have realized how many men it affects and, unfortunately how it disproportionately affects African American men. At the same time, there are ways to stay ahead of it through testing and regular checkups.”
Chadha is a member of the Mike Slive Foundation board of directors, joining leaders from across the community to help guide the work to find a cure.
Even before he joined the board, Chadha knew much about the cause. The late Mike Slive founded the foundation shortly after he stepped down as commissioner of the Southeastern Conference in 2015. Spurred by his own fight with prostate cancer, Slive wanted to ensure that future generations would have better prospects.
Harwood, Mike’s daughter and the executive director of the Birmingham, Alabama-based nonprofit, said the first step – the PSA test – is crucial.

“If my dad were here today, he would be saying to you, ‘I need you to go get checked.’” Slive Harwood said. “We are doing this because he didn’t want any other man to go through all he went through.”
While numbers are his profession, Chadha has also been a hands-on participant, joining hundreds of others running in the I’m with Mike 5K and helping make the annual Beyond Blue event a success.
“The more we’re out there, the more we’re talking about prostate cancer, we’ll reach more men and save lives,” Chadha. “I’m honored to be part of this life-saving work.”
