13th March 2020 – Hollard’s 10th Daredevil Run

This is the 10th anniversary of the legendary Hollard Daredevil Run. Time to dust off your Speedo and register for the biggest men’s health event of the year. It’s not a race so no need to worry about getting into shape. You can even walk it, just be there.

Our Patient Affairs Board chairman and vice-chairman Iain Johnston and Thulani Sibisi did the run together in 2018 and they’ll be doing it again together this year.

Go to the Daredevil run for more information and to register.

25th September 2020 – Suit Up September Day

Suit up on 25th September for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month!


 

What is Suit Up September all about?
We’re asking men and women to wear a suit on Friday 25th September (or on any other day in September) and to purchase a “Suit Up September” sticker to help raise awareness about prostate cancer. All funds raised will be used to support the education, awareness and research initiatives that we implement.

How can companies, organisations and individuals get involved?
You can simply purchase your “Suit Up September” stickers directly from The Prostate Cancer Foundation and wear a suit on 25th September or you could organise an event where wearing a suit would be unusual.
Stickers cost R20 each plus a courier fee which is dependent on the delivery address.

Cool ways to celebrate Suit Up September and help create awareness about Prostate Cancer
Firstly, order your stickers from the Prostate Cancer Foundation and wear them, regardless of what activity you have chosen. Secondly take photos, upload them to social media and tag them with #suitupseptember. If you’re wearing our stickers we’ll load them onto our pages.

Suit Up for work
Arrange with your work colleagues to wear your best suits on 25th September and have a prize for the best dressed man and lady. If you always wear a suit to work, add a twist by all wearing bow ties or tuxedos.

Suit Up to braai some wors
Invite your mates around for a “Suit Up September braai”.

Suit Up for your weekly sporting activity
Arrange with your team mates to suit-up for a sports event in September. If it’s too hot you can cheat and just wear a tie. Get your mates to suit up for your local Park Run.

Suit Up and Cycle
Organise an informal Suit Up September cycle ride with your mates.

Follow us on social media to stay up to date with the campaign and see which celebrities are supporting us.

Johannesburg- and Pretoria-based companies can also book the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s exhibition stand with educational material and a men’s health wellness advisor. We also provide speakers to educate men about prostate cancer.

Why is it important to create awareness about prostate cancer?
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers affecting men throughout the world. The risk for prostate cancer increases with age and 70% of men over the age of 70 are likely to be affected. Treatments for prostate cancer are highly effective, particularly if the disease is detected early. Creating awareness about prostate cancer can save lives. Men who have been educated about prostate cancer are more likely to go for their annual screening tests. Detecting prostate cancer early facilitates the best treatment options. There are normally no symptoms in the early stages of prostate cancer which is why screening is so important.
