This Saturday, Rusty, Paul Taylor, I and some great people are going to be taking part in a special walk. A March for Men in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.
We shall be walking the length of the River Lune from Devil’s Bridge at Kirkby Lonsdale to where it meets the sea at the City of Lancaster. 17 miles across the county of Lancashire that for some of our friends attending will be a challenge the likes they will have not done before, yet a very rewarding challenge at that.
In the last few years, cancer has touched close friends and family way too much for comfort. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer amongst men in the UK. The figure is quite alarming, 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point in their lives. A scary statistic, especially as I race toward the big 50 myself. I have made myself very aware of this form of cancer as until recently I was totally unaware of its prevalence and how it is impacting families all over the country in great numbers.
Prostate Cancer UK is on a mission to stop this cancer being a killer. Through making radical and positive changes to diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and support.
I have the pleasure of organising a March for Men on behalf of Prostate Cancer UK but you can get involved too by organising your own! Take a look at their page to see how you can take part.
You will be able to follow our walk on Saturday 17 November or maybe you want to join in on part or all of it? Let me know. Let us create a day of walking that not only combines us to a cause but also raises awareness of prostate cancer to many more people.
I will be tweeting all along the walk on @paul_steele as well as sharing pics etc to Facebook and Instagram. You can follow the walk as we go if not with us. The social media channels are in my author profile under this post. #MarchforMen
No matter the weather we shall be there, hiking the miles for Prostate Cancer UK.
I thank you so much for reading and ask once again if you are able to donate whatever amount you can to this great cause, and thanks to all those going for the miles in aid of a great charity.
See you out there! 🙂
