About The Big Daddy Awards
On The Line is a national prostate cancer awareness and education program that is launching a powerful rally to the public this Father's Day. The goal is to raise awareness and encourage men to talk about the disease, which 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with in his lifetime. The platform is "The Big Daddy Awards," the first-ever online awards show designed to honor the 70 million Fathers in America, while raising funds and awareness for prostate cancer programs and research for a cure.
Who made the list of nominees? Dads…the Big Daddies. The ones who make us laugh. The ones we cheer for from the stands. The ones who inspire us on the silver screen. The ones that are the best at what they do.

Michael Burg - President/Edge Health and Entertainment
The founder and President of Edge Health and Entertainment is Michael Burg from Charlotte, North Carolina. Burg, whose background includes over 30 years as television executive, founded Edge Health and Entertainment following two bouts with Hodgkin Disease, a form of blood cancer. Experiencing, first hand, the difficulty navigating the complex healthcare system, Mike saw the need to create "easy to digest" information for patients battling illness. Through Charlotte based Edge Health and Entertainment, Mike Burg established health campaigns that use the "lure" of entertainment to capture an audience...and then communicates key health messages in a vernacular all can understand.
With an initial focus on cancer related campaigns, Michael Burg and his Charlotte team expanded their programs into the world of Kid's Health. As the Executive Producer of the Teen Choice Awards on FOX, Mike knows how to capture the attention of kids and teens. Using this experience and knowledge, Burg launched the above mentioned "Kids Health Goes Gold", the first of several, soon to be announced, national campaigns aimed at a variety of key health and wellness issues targeting this key demographic.
