Let’s Cycle to the Moon. Let’s Bike to the Moon. Let’s Save a Dad!
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 47,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year and over 11,000 men die from 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 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.
This year, we are expanding on Cycle to the Moon and welcoming the motorcycle community to join us in our mission to “tackle” prostate cancer. Bike to the Moon will encourage motorcycle clubs across the UK to join us in our journey and help us reach our goal.
