What motivates people like Tony Nicklin to cycle, along with some friends, all the way from London, England, to Valencia in Spain in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation? Read his inspiring story, and those of many others and dream up your special way of supporting prostate cancer awareness.
If there’s one thing in life I thought I would never have to worry about, it’s Prostate Cancer. I was wrong. My Dad was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2010. Thanks to an early diagnosis and successful surgery, my Dad is a prostate cancer survivor. He’s one of the lucky ones. Prostate cancer is the third biggest killer of men of all cancers (behind lung and bowel cancers).
In honour of my Dad and all the amazing men in my life (my wonderful husband Wayne, my brother Rhys, uncles, cousins, in-laws and friends) I’m running a 100 mile (166km) race around beautiful Mt Taranaki for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand. It’s a great charity – the money raised will be used to support men currently diagnosed with Prostate Cancer plus fund research into the disease. So please sponsor me now! Many thanks for your support. Raised over $3,420 Source: http://www.fundraiseonline.co.nz/KimMcInally/
Thanks to Corys who are one of our corporate supporters of Blue September, they do a great job every year in raising awareness and funds for the foundation. Well done on the 24 hour Run-A-Thon this year.

My Dad died of Prostate Cancer 5 years ago. So this year in memory of Dad I’m running the Auckland half marathon in support of Prostate Cancer. It’s a great charity – the money raised will be used to support men currently diagnosed with Prostate Cancer plus also research into the disease.
I’m definitely not a natural runner so this is hard work for me. I have been training all year for this, so would appreciate your support.
