The Mendips Lakes and Lumps Ride Official Charity Partner
The inaugural Mendips Lakes and Lumps Ride is taking place on Father's Day (Sunday 16th June) and we're proud to partner with Prostate Cancer UK - supporting the leading men’s health charity and helping to stop prostate cancer being a killer.
Join us in the fight against prostate cancer
We are asking participants to join us in the fight against prostate cancer by using their place in the Ride to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. The entry fee effectively covers the cost of putting the event on, so it's the money you raise that will make a big difference by funding ground-breaking research. It will also help provide dedicated support and information to men and their families and make prostate cancer a disease the next generation need not fear.
One man dies every 45 minutes from prostate cancer, which is simply unacceptable and many people are unaware that the disease is the most common cancer in men. It is shocking when you realise that the number of men dying from prostate cancer every year has now overtaken the number of women dying from breast cancer, making prostate cancer the third biggest cancer killer in the UK. Therefore we are determined to do our bit to support our charity partner.
Incentives for sponsored riders
Prostate Cancer UK offers sponsored riders some great cycling incentives:
Raise £200 and receive a Prostate Cancer UK high performance cycling jersey to wear with pride.
Raise £500 and you can choose between a Prostate Cancer UK special blue cycling jersey or a Prostate Cancer UK winter cycling jacket. You’ll also receive the standard cycling jersey for raising over £200.
How your fundraising will help
The money you raise goes directly towards helping Prostate Cancer UK to support men with prostate cancer (and their families, who are also affected), and without your sponsorship and donations they would not be able to provide vital services to those that need them most.
Prostate Cancer UK depends on people like you!
