Throughout October, staff members at Haverfordwest County AFC will be taking part in daily running and walking challenges to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK.
The challenge, which is called Prostate United, sees football clubs from right across the country lace up their running and cycling shoes to take part in the epic challenge for a fantastic cause.
The challenge was the idea of Stephen Gilpin, Head Physiotherapist at Rotherham United, and Ross Burbeary, Head of Performance at Lincoln City, and its popularity has increased year-on-year since its inception in 2018. Over 60 football clubs and 300 football club employees took part last year.
“We want to showcase the Prostate United family and network of people coming together to achieve one common goal, which is to raise as much money as possible for Prostate Cancer UK to help beat a disease killing one man every 45 minutes in the UK.
“We really hope that the football community embraces the challenge and gets on board to help beat prostate cancer – the most common cancer in men.”
Founder, Stephen Gilpin, Head of Academy Sport, Science & Medicine, Wolverhampton Wanderers
