The club are joining Prostate United 2021 to raise vital awareness and funds for Prostate Cancer UK. For the past three years, Stephen Gilpin and Ross Burbeary, have taken on the challenge of running 10km a day throughout November, and we will be joining the challenge this year to raise awareness of prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, with 1 in 8 men diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
More than 47,500 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year, with one man dying from prostate cancer every 45 minutes – that's more than 11,500 men every year.
