Prostate Cancer does not discriminate. Each year in Australia, almost 3,300 men from all walks of life die of prostate cancer. Around 20,000 new cases of Prostate Cancer are diagnosed in Australia every year. Often an ‘unspoken’ topic amongst men, in order to reduce these devastating statistics, early detection, treatment and awareness is key.
The inaugural It’s a Bloke Thing Prostate Cancer Luncheon was first held in Toowoomba in 2011 and has since become an significant fundraising event benefiting various men’s health and research programs, which have included the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, Toowoomba Hospital Foundation and Manup! Australia.
Together as a community we have raised $6 million since the event inception.
