Pedal4Prostate is an exciting and fun 4-hour endurance cycling event at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand as part of Blue September. An event not to be missed, it’s a rare opportunity to hit the track under your own horsepower.
Race as fast as you can to complete as many laps as possible while manoeuvring the twists and turns of the track. It’s a race against time, strategizing how you or your team will take the chequered flag. By taking part you’ll be helping raise funds to enable the Prostate Cancer Foundation to raise public awareness of this disease; provide peer support for men, and their families, who are living with prostate cancer every day, advocate for patients, and fund New Zealand-based research to improve diagnosis and treatment outcomes.
We are very excited to introduce some changes to the registration this year with E-Bike and Over 60s categories, and a Schools Registration (must be over 16yrs). The countdown is on, so head to the website to book your place in the starting line up.
Men and their partners and families face real challenges living with advanced prostate cancer. As well as the dealing with the cancer, and the uncertainties of survival, there are the side effects of the treatments and medications which affect quality of life. But there is real hope for men with this condition as improved treatments become available and better scans and tools to assess the state of the disease.
Diet and exercise can also provide real benefits alongside the treatments as does having a positive outlook and support from friends and family. This forum will help men understand more about their disease, face their challenges and improve their quality of life. Spaces are limited, booking essential.
Guest Presenter, Louisa Fleure, is an Advanced Prostate Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust, London. She is visiting New Zealand to speak at the Urological Nurses Society conference, sponsored by the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
