Football League fans cycle for Prostate Cancer UK

Football League fans from across the whole of England and Wales have come together this weekend to unite against Prostate Cancer and help raise awareness of a deadly disease which affects one in eight men while raising vital funds for men’s health charity Prostate Cancer UK.

Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in men which is particularly common in males who are over 50 years of age while black men and those who have a family history of the disease are most at risk. More than 47,000 men are diagnosed with Prostate Cancer each year while one man dies from the disease every hour.

This weekend sees fans from many Football League clubs join some of their heroes in taking part in the annual Prostate Cancer UK ‘Football to Amsterdam’ cycle ride. A total of 350 riders set off from three different start points – London (Lee Valley VeloPark), Barnsley (Oakwell Stadium) and Ipswich (Portman Road) this morning on a gruelling cycling challenge to Amsterdam.

Over two days riders from more than 50 different Football League clubs will cycle over 145 miles with the aim to raise half a million pounds for Prostate Cancer UK, the Official Charity Partner of The Football League.

The army of cyclists includes a number of former professionals with the likes of Luther Blissett, Terry Butcher and Viv Anderson taking part in the event.
