Cycle to the Moon

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.

Cycle to the Moon ambassador, vocal coach and TV presenter David Grant, said:

“Prostate cancer does not care who it affects or the devastation it causes to patients and their families. It's a cause close to my heart as my cousin was diagnosed, so I want to urge you to make a difference and get on your bikes and clock up some miles. One man dying every 45 minutes is a startling figure and we all need to do what we can to reduce mortality figures. This is a chance for members of the public to fight this cancer. The event is open to all ages regardless of abilities, it is designed as a fun and healthy activity whilst at the same time raising funds for Tackle 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. It’s a fun, healthy activity raising funds on behalf of Tackle Prostate Cancer as well as encouraging the next generation to participate. The campaign’s target is £250,000 – £1 for every mile between Earth and the Moon.

Professor Frank Chinegwundoh MBE, Consultant Urological Surgeon, Barts Health NHS Trust, Chairman, Tackle Clinical Advisory Board said: “Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK.  Unfortunately many men are unaware of this fact and unaware that there is a blood test, PSA, that is an indicator of their risk.  The 'Cycle to the Moon, Save a Dad' initiative will raise children's awareness and thus their fathers. Undoubtedly, lives will be saved.  Knowledge is power.”

So, come on, let’s Cycle to the Moon and #SAVEADAD!
