and #SAVEADAD

 

In the night sky, the Moon can appear to be barely larger than a pound coin. In reality it is almost 250,000 miles away. Big things can be deceptively small like that.

Now think of this: imagine being diagnosed with cancer in a part of your body that is barely the size of a walnut. This is prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men. Over 11,000 men in the UK die from prostate cancer each year and 47,000 men are diagnosed with it – that’s one every 45 minutes. We need to reverse these statistics now.

Cycle to the Moon is a major fundraising initiative by Tackle Prostate Cancer (click here) that will encourage people of all ages to get on their bikes and raise money for the fight against prostate cancer.

The event is open to all ages. We hope that everybody can show their support through cycling miles either on the roads, in the gym, at home or on outdoor trails. Raising funds on behalf of Tackle Prostate can be a fun and healthy activity, while encouraging the next generation. The campaign’s target is £250,000 – £1 for every mile between Earth and the Moon.

Let’s Cycle to the Moon and Save a Dad!

Please use our #SAVEADAD on social media to show your support.

If you need any help or advice, please call Peter Adams on 0300 365 4080 or email saveadad@tackleprostate.org

Cycle to the Moon ambassador, vocal coach and TV presenter David Grant, said:

David Grant

“Prostate cancer does not care who it affects or the devastation it causes to patients and their families. It’s a cause close to my heart as my cousin was diagnosed, so I want to urge you to make a difference and get on your bikes and clock up some miles. One man dying every 45 minutes is a startling figure and we all need to do what we can to reduce mortality figures. This is a chance for members of the public to fight this cancer. The event is open to all ages regardless of abilities, it is designed as a fun and healthy activity whilst at the same time raising funds for Tackle Prostate Cancer.” Watch David’s Appeal.
