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.

Without access to a gym at the moment, it can be hard to work your chest, triceps and biceps. Thankfully press ups are a great exercise for all of those muscle groups. If you gradually increase the number of reps you can do, you’ll make noticeable gains and feel much stronger in your chest and arms. Once you’ve reached the milestone of 50 press-ups in a day, you’ll qualify for our digital medal to commemorate your achievement.
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) You’ll use your 30-day press-up training plan to record your progress along the way.
4) Once you’ve finished the challenge, send us your completed training log as proof that you’ve mastered the press-up, and we’ll approve your evidence and you will receive a digital medal and certificate as a result!
