Why take on the London Marathon for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre?

Each year 45,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. They are someone’s grandfather, father, brother, or son. Whilst prostate cancer is treatable in the prostate, once it spreads to other parts of the body, it becomes incurable and life-limiting. Our aim is simple: to fund the ground-breaking research that will stop lives being needlessly lost to advanced disease. By running for #TeamPCRC you are giving these men and their families a better future.
