The charity Tackle Prostate Cancer has launched its Bike to the Moon campaign to invite the motorcycle community to help raise money and awareness in the fight against prostate cancer.

Drawing on the success of the charity’s Cycle to the Moon campaign last year, this new campaign extends the same idea – raising £250,000 by travelling 250,000 miles, which is the distance from the Earth to the Moon – to bikers as well.

The charity is encouraging bikers throughout the UK to help raise money and awareness either as part of clubs, with friends and family or as individuals. It intends to use the funds raised to campaign for patients, educate the public about the benefits of early testing and back its ‘Save a Dad’ initiative, which it hopes to see introduced to secondary schools.

Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men and approximately one in eight men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives. One man dies from prostate cancer every 45 minutes, and approximately 400,000 men are either living with it or have survived it.
