Join our Prost80 Initiative!

Many of our supporters had been planning to raise funds for Prostate Scotland this year, whether by participating in a sporting event, organising a collection or social events. These events and activities such as the Edinburgh Marathon, Glasgow Kiltwalks and Forth Bridge Abseil have all had to be postponed. But we still need your support –  so why not join our Prost80 Initiative instead?

We’ve compiled virtual fundraising ideas you could do at home in 80 days, hours, minutes or seconds – head to our page The Prost80 Initiative:  Virtual Fundraising Ideas for more details.  There are other easy ways to support Prostate Scotland too, including ways that you can still support us non financially.

The key requirement is that you must stay safe, follow Scottish Government and NHS guidelines on staying home, staying safe and on exercise and social distancing

The object of the Prost80 activities is:

  • To increase awareness that early detection helps over 80% of men survive prostate cancer in Scotland and to help increase the percentage of men surviving prostate cancer even further
  • Maintain and help increase awareness of prostate issues
  • To help raise funds to support Prostate Scotland’s awareness, information and support activities to support men and their families affected by prostate cancer and disease (there are now over 27,000 men in Scotland living with Prostate Cancer) and to help increase the survival rate even further to more than 80%

Our focus continues to be on taking forward our work to ensure that even more men and their families can benefit and receive information and support on prostate issues and particularly on COVID-19  and prostate cancer at this time.

Thank you for your support. Stay home, stay safe and stay well.
