Since 2017, more than 10,000 people have walked to help fight against prostate cancer – which has now overtaken breast cancer to become the third biggest cancer killer in the UK, taking one man every 45 minutes – raising over £3.3 million to support the vital work. But so much more is needed to bring about the better testing, treatments and care that will dramatically reduce its deaths in the UK.
Prostate Cancer UK (formerly known as The Prostate Cancer Charity) is holding a March for Men, in Cannon Hill Park, in Birmingham, where you can take on either the short, medium or long walk to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.
The short route is fully accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs – however due to the nature of the ground, if it has been a wet summer this may be subject to change.
So, the organisers are encouraging everybody to round up their loved ones and register now to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.
March For Men, sponsored by Burton Menswear, takes place this Sunday, June 9.
The events site opens at 10am, with the Walk starting at 11am.
