Today we’re delighted to welcome Prostate Cancer UK to Deepdale. Volunteers will be collecting money outside the ground this afternoon and with your generosity will be raising money to beat a disease killing 1 man every 45 minutes in the UK.
Prostate Cancer UK is the Official Charity Partner of the EFL. Their “Man of Men” logo sits proudly in the squad numbers of every one of our player’s shirts.
But what does it mean? Prostate Cancer UK’s “Man of Men” represents everyone who wants to stop prostate cancer being a killer. It’s a badge proudly worn by Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling and his fellow pundits week in week out on Soccer Saturday.
Last year Jeff Stelling walked with football fans Kevin and Lloyd two inspirational men, living with incurable prostate cancer who are doing everything they can to raise money to beat a disease killing one man every 45 minutes in the UK. Watch their story here.
This June, Prostate Cancer UK will again be recruiting an army of walkers across the country after new figures have shown the number of men dying from prostate cancer has overtaken the number of women dying from breast cancer, making prostate cancer the third biggest cancer killer in the UK.
To combat these latest stats the charity will be heading to a number of locations, including Manchester, on 10th June 2018 at Wythenshawe Park. Providing a choice of distances – circa 2k, 5k, or 10k - participants are encouraged to fundraise through sponsorship in their own bid to beat the disease.
If you’re interested in joining one of the marches and putting your best foot forward, then visit Prostate Cancer UK’s website at www.prostatecanceruk.org/marchformen to find out more.
You can also show your support like Kevin, Lloyd and Jeff Stelling by wearing your Prostate Cancer UK badge with pride.
