On and around Father’s Day weekend this year, across Great Britain and Ireland, our Rotary clubs organised bike rides for all to join in whether a beginner with stabilisers or an experienced mountain biker.
Together we raised hundreds of pounds for our chosen charities Prostate Cancer UK, Prostate Scotland, Prostate Cymru and the Irish Cancer Society as well as local charities of your choice. The causes are very grateful for everyone who took part. These charities offer tremendous support for those affected by the cancer, whether patients, relatives or friends.
The Rotary Ride team is gearing up for next year and is inviting Rotary members to think about their Rotary Rides. A new guidance pack is being created along with great marketing materials including a poster and a logo for printing on to t-shirts to help things get into gear.
In the UK, about 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives. Older men, men with a family history of prostate cancer and black men are more at risk.
It is estimated that over 11,000 men die every year which amount to one man every 45 minutes. This means there is a significant need to increase awareness, treatments and research.
The survival rate is improving but early diagnosis is still necessary and can often lead to more successful care.
The Rotary Ride is hugely popular and has the potential to raise life-saving funds as well as showcase what Rotary has to offer in their community and beyond.
You will be able to register your Rotary Ride, find one in your local area and get more information when the Rotary Ride registration area is polished up and ready for action.
In the meantime please keep an eye on this page and we will let you know when things are ready.
