At Burton, we’re proud to announce that we will be supporting Prostate Cancer UK’s March for Men this summer. This continues our partnership with the leading men’s health charity to help fight against the most common cancer in men in the UK.
March for Men is a series of seven walking events happening in London, Leeds, Glasgow, Bristol, Manchester, Nottingham and Liverpool.
Every 45 minutes one man dies from prostate cancer in the UK. That’s someone’s dad, brother, uncle, granddad, husband or friend. And figures announced earlier this year showed, for the first time ever, the number of men dying from prostate cancer every year has overtaken the number of women dying from breast cancer.
We know how important it is to raise awareness and support Prostate Cancer UK’s ambition to beat prostate cancer, through funding research to create better testing and treatments. Now is the time to help stop prostate cancer being a killer.
You may have seen the Man of Men pin badges in Burton stores and worn by football managers on touchlines up and down the country. Recent news involving household names affected by the disease has brought it to the forefront even more.
Now available online, you can do your bit to raise money to invest into ground-breaking research.
Each badge sold has the potential to save a man’s life. It costs the charity less than £1 to reach men with their health awareness messages – so it really can make the difference.
By raising just £25, you can provide a man diagnosed with prostate cancer with unlimited time to talk through treatment options with the charity’s Specialist Nurses.
By raising just £150, you can pay for a clinical research nurse to support patients on a potentially life-extending clinical trial for one week.
By raising just £1000, you can cover the costs of a week of research into ground-breaking prostate cancer treatments.
With Prostate Cancer UK’s March for Men taking place in seven cities across the UK and more coming soon at Burton, so grab your walking boots and join us in the fight against prostate cancer.
