Eddie Howe throws his support behind men’s health event March for Men
AFC Bournemouth Manager Eddie Howe, urges Bournemouth locals to raise awareness of men’s healthcare by signing up to March for Men.
March for Men – one of Bournemouth Hospital Charity’s biggest events – returns to Bournemouth Pier Approach for another year, and Eddie Howe wants local people to sign up to raise awareness of the healthcare issues affecting men. Thousands of men from every part of Bournemouth’s community are facing men’s health concerns such as prostate or testicular cancers.
On Sunday 24 March 2019, people in the community are invited to join the hundreds of people who gather every year to walk, jog or run either 1km, 5km or 10km to raise awareness and funds for the Royal Bournemouth Hospital Urology department.
Eddie Howe said,
“March for Men is the biggest fundraising event locally for men’s health and is definitely something that local people should be getting behind this year. We all know dads, granddads, brothers, sons or mates who have been to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital for treatment and this event is a great way to raise awareness of the health problems men face.”
Karen Smith, Bournemouth Hospital Charity’s Senior Events Fundraiser had this to say,
“After the success of last year’s event, we are thrilled to be running March for Men again at Bournemouth Pier approach. We are lucky enough to be joined by the Bournemouth Male Voice Choir, who will be providing entertainment throughout the day. It is our aim to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues within our community.”
No matter a person’s age, ability or gender – anyone can be a part of this amazing event.
With the support of the community, the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals can continue to make men’s health treatment better for every man in the local community.
