Walsall Football Club is delighted to link up with Prostate Cancer UK for the Walsall FC Golf Day being held at Walsall Golf Club on Thursday 2nd September.
There are still a limited number of fourball teams available to participate on what promises to be a fun day with team and individual prizes up for grabs.
Prostate Cancer UK works across the sporting landscape to raise awareness of the disease that will affect about one in eight men during their lifetime and the club is delighted to use this event as a way of hopefully engaging supporters to get checked.
Walsall FC Head of Commercial Alex Smith said: “The club is delighted to help shine a light on the work that Prostate Cancer UK do to raise awareness of the disease.
"Football and Golf attract many of the same audience to watch and participate and very often this demographic fits into the high risk area for prostate cancer. We thank Prostate Cancer UK for their support of the day.”
Matt Holdstock, Sport Engagement Manager at Prostate Cancer UK had added: “Golf has been so influential in spreading the word about prostate cancer, but sadly this disease is not yet out of bounds. One in eight men will be affected by prostate cancer in their lifetime in the UK, and that risk doubles to one in four if you are black, so we need to drive home this serious message.
"Prostate Cancer UK want to raise awareness and fund ground-breaking research to help fight the disease. That will help us provide dedicated support and information to men affected by prostate cancer, and their loved ones too.
"We thank everyone at Walsall for supporting Prostate Cancer UK and hope the day goes well.”
