The Age Run Melbourne is more than just a “fun run”. For many participants, it is an opportunity to give back to the community by raising funds for a cause close to their heart.
Australian Prostate Cancer Research has entered a team to participate in this year’s event “Prostate Runners for Research“. We aim to raise $20,000 too go towards Prostate cancer research, and in order to this need as many runners or sponsors as possible.

The Age Run Melbourne is a great way to promote healthy living and fitness, participate in a major community event, and raise funds for your chosen cause.
So, enter the 3km kids event, 5km run/walk, 10km run or half-marathon and start training!
CONCERT FOR CANCER RESEARCH
Warrnambool Lighthouse Theatre - 7.30pm, Saturday 19 October 2013

- 1 in 2 Australian men will have been diagnosed with cancer at some stage of their life by age 85.
- Each year, more than 22,000 Australian men die of cancer.
Even though less than half of the Australian population are men, more men than women are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Some of the most common cancers causing death in men are: lung cancer, prostate cancer, bowel cancer, melanoma and testicular cancer. Unfortunately the list doesn’t stop there. There are many other cancers that commonly affect men, have a high mortality rate and which are often preventable through lifestyle choices.
