We raise awareness of testicular cancer to encourage self examination and detection


The next beer push 2025 is announced - 7 ultra marathons in 7 days pushing 75kg of beer. This mammoth challenge will take place in Norwich in October 2025 when 'David will push the barrel the same route for 7 days covering 210 miles in a week.

In October 23 David pushed a 75KG barrel of beer 7 marathons in 7 consecutive days.

He is now back in training for his 2025 beer push which will be even further and harder.

In the meantime look out for events and fundraisers during 2024.

The work of It’s on the Ball – with a special shout out to Vince and Anne and the team, really helps to highlight that it is young men – aged 18 -24 – who are most likely to be affected, but by checking themselves monthly they can have a 96% survival rate. However, late diagnosis, just by a few weeks can all too often be fatal as the cancer spreads vigorously.

By raising awareness I hope to stop young men dying needlessly.  

We are now working on Beer Push 25 so do please keep giving

Beer Push 25 - 7 ultra marathons ( each 30 miles) in 7 days

Beer Push 23 - 7 marathons in 7 days - 186 miles Job done

Beer Push 22 - North Norfolk to London - 149 miles/ 9 days  Job done

You can also learn more about testicular cancer and how to check yourself monthly by visiting: Itsontheball.org If we can get the word out there and get young men to check themselves monthly, we will save lives.I must be crazy!!!
