We have signed on as the major sponsor of Pedal4Prostate, a charity cycling event that raises funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Given our industry is a male-dominated one this sponsorship is a chance to support a good cause and to help encourage blokes to talk more openly about prostate cancer and the importance of regular testing. Prostate cancer is the number one cancer affecting Kiwi men, with the Ministry of Health estimating more than 600 die from the disease each year.
Pedal4Prostate, on Sunday October 13, is a fun four-hour endurance push bike cycling race at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park.
Last year, 196 cyclists raised over $137,000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation, so if you’re keen to enter a team check out the website pedal4prostate.org.nz
