Prostate Cancer UK’s Glasgow March for Men takes place this Sunday, June 16 – Father’s Day – at Pollok Park.

It’s a family-friendly event where amblers of a range of fitness levels can walk in solidarity to celebrate and pay tribute to the special men in their lives.

The event village opens at 10am and the walks – which are 2km, 5km or 10km – start at 11am.

Since 2016, more than 10,000 people have walked with Prostate Cancer UK and raised over £3.3 million to support the charity’s vital work – but with the disease killing more people than breast cancer that quest is more urgent than ever.

Over 26,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer in Scotland, and that figure is 4,600 in Glasgow, emphasising the need to raise awareness and funds.

Prostate Cancer UK Chief Executive Angela Culhane: “The fight against prostate cancer, a disease that kills one man every 45 minutes, is a purpose worth uniting for, and we want to continue making strides to combat this disease.
