We fund research to stop prostate cancer killing men

Story

  • You?   Donate to a worthy cause, where every penny goes directly to cancer research.
  • Me?   I’ll bike 600 miles from Paris to Monte Carlo, ascending over the 26,000ft. in six days
  • Together?   We’ll fight prostate cancer.

The 3rd, PROSTATE1000 fundraiser is now LIVE…and I am petitioning for your support! 

After six months of grueling training, on May 26th, twenty friends will embark on an epic 600mile bike ride while ascending over 26,000 cumulative feet, from Paris to Monte Carlo.

Why? Every 3.2 minutes a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer – in 2019, over 1.6 million men worldwide will be diagnosed. (Statistically, over our six-day bike ride alone, an estimated 26,300 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer…..that is over 1 new diagnosis for every foot that we ascend on our bikes.). We’re riding to put the brakes on these statistics – raising money to directly fund researchers who at this very moment, are working in the US and UK to find a cure. 

Where your generous donation goes:

  • You can trust that every pound, euro, or dollar donated will go directly to Prostate Cancer UK (PCUK) and to the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF). (Each rider is 100% self-funded and is paying their own expenses, covering their equipment, bike shipments, international flights, hotels, food etc. with assistance from our cherished corporate sponsors and partners)
  • The last two bike rides raised nearly $150K -  and every penny went directly to PCUK and to the PCF, and to fund the very research that is seeking out the cure for this deadly disease 
  • Each member is campaigning hard to help raise the team's goal of £200,000 on this year’s ride. Even if you can only spare £1, €1 or $1, your contribution will go miles in financing research.

Please click on the donate button NOW.  Please share my page with as many friends, family, colleagues and those you know who have battled the disease, as is possible!

PLEASE DONATE TODAY! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! 

About the 2019 PROSTATE1000 “PARIS to MONTE CARLO” Ride for Research

Founded in 2009 by my friend and team-mate, Gideon Lang-Laddie, PROSTATE1000 has biked from Manhattan to Montauk, from London to Paris, this year from Paris to Monte Carlo, and has built-up countless miles of training along the way. Gideon started the organization after he lost his father, Sir Hugh Laddie, to prostate cancer, and set about helping to fund research into a cure, so that no further lives need be lost.
