HELP RAISE MONEY FOR PROSTATE CANCER UK THIS WEEKEND

8 April 2015

Take part in the Stevenage FC time trial pre-match in the Broadhall Suite

For Saturday’s game against Northampton we welcome representatives from Prostate Cancer UK, the Official Charity Partner of The Football League, to The Lamex Stadium.

They’ll be with us to raise awareness of a disease that will affect 1 in 8 men and to ask you to join Men United, Prostate Cancer UK’s movement for everyone who believes men are worth fighting for.

A team of volunteers will be around the ground pre-match raising money for Prostate Cancer UK for anyone wish to make a donation, with further information available on the day about Men United. 

By joining Men United, you’ll get more opportunities to do great stuff with your friends, from bike rides to pub quizzes to Iron Man challenges. Whatever you and your mates love to do, you can do it for Men United and help beat a disease that kills one man every hour in the UK.

For example you could represent Stevenage in the London to Amsterdam Cycle Challenge cycle this June. BBC Three Counties / Boro Player commentator Steve Watkins is part of a (currently) four rider team who will be extending their ride by starting a day early, cycling to the start line at Leyton Orient and making it a Stevenage to Amsterdam ride!

Of course the main aim of the trip is to raise much needed funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer UK and the team can be sponsored for their efforts at www.justgiving.com/teams/teamstevenage.

To help raise awareness of the bike ride and to raise further funds, Steve and his team will be setting up the Stevenage FC Time Trial in the Broadhall Suite prior to the game. Supporters from Stevenage and Northampton are invited to take part and see how far they can register on a stationary bike in two minutes, all for a minimum £3 donation. 

The winner will receive a signed Stevenage FC shirt and the winning U12 will receive a signed football! So come along to the Broadhall Suite pre-match for a bit of fun and do your bit to help the lads assist a very important charity.
