Description

Every year over 50,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with prostate, testicular or penile cancer. Orchid exists to save the lives of men from male cancers through educational campaigns, raising awareness, providing dedicated Support Services and funding a world class research programme.

 

As a small charity, we need your support to help us raise vital funds to ensure that we can continue to reach men with important male cancer messages and provide support to those who need us.

Join us (virtually) to run or walk a half marathon. There’s no set date, time or route. You can take part when and how you choose. You can complete your half marathon in stages over multiple days or you might wish to complete the challenge in one go.

 

Here’s how to take part:

 

1) Register your details using the “Join Virtual Event” button above.

2) Set up your online fundraising page here 

3) Record your half marathon walk or run, using your favourite app (or take some photos). You can do this in one go or do it cumulatively across shorter walks/runs.

4) Upload your evidence of having done the half marathon (making sure to upload all evidence at once) and once approved you’ll receive a virtual Orchid medal to mark your achievement!

 

There is no set fundraising target but if you raise over £100 in sponsorship we will send you a medal in the post.

 

 

Good luck, enjoy and stay safe!
