We need bowls clubs to help us raise awareness about prostate cancer in 2022

The Prostate Cancer Foundation is asking all bowls clubs to help us raise awareness about prostate cancer by setting aside one day in September, which is prostate cancer awareness month.

All that’s required, is for bowler’s to suit up for that day and buy a sticker for R50 from the Prostate Cancer Foundation. It doesn’t have to be a full suit and tie. Participants can feel free to decide how they want to “suit up” for the day. We’ll supply the Suit Up September sticker badges and information leaflets about prostate cancer.

If you have a prostate cancer survivor at your club, who is willing to share a bit about their experience with having being diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer,  that can definitely add a personal touch to your event.

Why is it important to raise awareness about prostate cancer?

  • Prostate cancer is the most common cancer affecting South African men and it will be the most common cancer in South Africa by 2030.
  • There are usually no symptoms of prostate cancer in the early stages when it is curable.
  • Once prostate cancer spreads through the body (metastatic prostate cancer), it is no longer curable and treatment is focused on slowing disease progression.
  • Prostate cancer screening is the only way to ensure that the cancer is detected in the early stages when treatment is potentially curable

We know that you plan your events well in advance, which is why we’re asking you to set a date aside in September to raise awareness about prostate cancer.

September 2022 is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Suit up on any day in September for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month!


 

What is Suit Up September all about?
September is international prostate cancer awareness month and we use the opportunity to raise awareness about prostate cancer and to raise funds to help us with the work that we do.  We ask individuals, sports clubs, companies, organisations, healthcare professionals and academic departments to choose any day in September to “suit up” and to wear an official suit up badge purchased from us. All funds raised are used to support our  education and awareness programs.

 

 

How can companies get involved?
Choose any day in September to hold a “suit Up” event. You can do an in-office event or a virtual event, as long everyone is either wearing a suit up badge or they take a photo of themselves next to a screen displaying our 2022 Suit Up badge. Have a prize for the best dressed man and women and perhaps even one for the wackiest suit up outfit. Posting photos using the hashtag #suitupseptember helps us with gaining exposure. It’s also a great idea to have a speaker on prostate cancer, so please feel free to contact us and we’ll do our best to assist you.

How to order suit up badges
For bulk orders you can contact us and we’ll send “Suit Up September” stickers directly to you. Downlaodable stickers are availble from our online store. Stickers cost R50 each plus a courier fee which is dependent on the delivery address.

Why is it important to create awareness about prostate cancer?
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancer affecting South African men. 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. Raising 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. Prostate cancer that is detected in the early stages is curable. Once prostate cancer has spread (metastasized) it is not curable.  There are normally no symptoms in the early stages of prostate cancer which is why screening is so important.
