Trekking for Prostate Cancer Awareness

On the 19th
September 2016 Melvin Blunt, Andy Goodchild and Sean Morris will be leaving the
UK  to embark on a 7 day walk on Mount Kilimanjaro.

An 'off the cuff' suggestion in
a bar 12 months ago has now turned into reality for these intrepid walkers. After
months of training they are now ready to take on the ultimate challenge of a lifetime. 
They also want to raise money for the Lions Prostate Cancer charity.  Melvin has attended the Lions Prostate Cancer Awareness evening which offers a free PSA test to all attending. Also, a very close friend at the age of 50 was diagnosed with prostate cancer. 

Prostate cancer is the biggest killer of men over 50 in the UK. One man dies every hour in the UK and early treatment saves lives. There is currently no national screening programme. Each year Reading Lions Club hold a free prostate cancer awareness event and offer free prostate cancer PSA tests to men over 50 in the Reading area.
