The Australian Grand Prix Corporation has partnered with Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) for the Michelin® Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix 2018 for a second consecutive year.
With 20,000 men diagnosed every year, and one in seven men likely to be affected by prostate cancer, PCFA is encouraging fans, their families and friends to ‘Get Checked’ and talk with their GP at the event this year.
PCFA is dedicated to reducing the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men, their partners and families. PCFA does this by promoting and funding world leading, innovative research as well as implementing awareness and advocacy campaigns and education programs for the Australian community, health professionals and Government. The organisation also provides support for men and their families affected by prostate cancer through evidence-based information, resources, support groups and Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurses.
Australia’s premier motorcycle racing event is set to make an important contribution to the work of PCFA with staff and volunteers collecting donations and selling merchandise across the event weekend.
All funds raised at the event will support PCFA’s awareness, nursing and research programs.
