March for Men
10 March 2018
SASP are currently working on a project in partnership with Macmillan, the aim of the project is to raise awareness of suitable activities for people who are undergoing cancer treatment or who have completed their treatment within Somerset.
They are launching the project on 10th March.
March is Prostrate Cancer Awareness Month, one of their initiatives is ‘March for Men’ which encourages people to walk from one sporting venue to another. On the 10th March we will be walking along the tow path from Somerset County Cricket Ground to Taunton Rugby Club. There will be a representative from Cricket Club and the Mayor at the launch. We have also invited other local sports club to walk with us and there has been a really good response with m any local clubs represented, as well as representation from Macmillan, SASP and Prostrate Cancer charity.
On arrival at Taunton Rugby club they are giving us tickets to watch the match and we are providing a bus for their return.
Although the project relates to all cancers, one in eight white men and one in four black men will be affected by Prostrate Cancer which now takes more lives than breast cancer.
