The Silverstone Classic, which is the worlds biggest classic motor racing festival, is proud to announce that Prostate Cancer UK has been appointed as its Official Charity Partner for the next three years.
The motor racing festival is taking place over the weekend of 29-31 July 2016 and in 2015 attracted more than 100,000 visitors.
Currently one man an hour dies from prostate cancer in the UK. That’s 10,900 men a year. Based on current trends, if we ignore prostate cancer and do nothing, this number will rise to over 14,500 men a year by 2026. And by 2030 it’s predicted to be the most common cancer overall.
Nick O’Donohue of Prostate Cancer UK said:
“We’re really excited to be teaming up with the Silverstone Classic. This partnership offers the perfect platform to reach large numbers of car loving dads, lads and their families, whether they are revving up in the race paddocks or enjoying the packed infield displays and entertainment zones.
“Prostate cancer won’t beat itself. It’s a race against time but we believe it can be tamed within ten years, if action is taken now. We need to start talking if we are to stop men dying needlessly. Ignoring prostate cancer won’t beat it – only fighting it will.”
