Join a March for Men – and walk to help beat prostate cancer! There are three family-friendly events taking place, in London, Leeds and Glasgow, over the Father’s Day weekend and the charity hopes we’ll all take some steps to help! Providing a choice of distances around a circular route, the walks start and finish at an event village where there will be food, drink, music and a chance to find out more about the charity’s work. Children are welcome – and dogs too. The charity will also be encouraging supporters to hold their own marches to try and raise £1million through walking in 2017 – just go online and leave your details for information and ideas on how to arrange a walk yourself.
Coinciding with the walks, the intrepid television presenter Jeff Stelling will be lacing up his walking boots – trekking a mammoth 15 marathons in 15 days at the start of June, stopping off at numerous football grounds up the country. Currently one man an hour dies from prostate cancer in the UK. Money raised through March for Men will have a huge impact on the lives of those affected by the disease and will help bring medicine a few steps closer to stopping prostate cancer being a killer.
