Throughout October, the DSG Group is taking on the ‘Run the Month’ challenge to collectively run, jog or crawl hundreds of miles in order to raise £1,000 for Prostate Cancer UK.
Prostate cancer is now the most common cancer in the United Kingdom, with one man dying every 45 minutes. Many Grandfathers, Fathers, Husbands, Brothers, and Friends have died as a result of this terrible disease. In the case of many cancers, early detection is crucial. Men who are diagnosed early on have a 100 percent chance of living for five years or longer. This is only 49% at this point in the process.
A colleague came to us with this challenge and now the DSG team is raising funds for a cause near and dear to our hearts, as many of our loved ones are affected. By raising money we hope to support the men and families affected by the disease as well as fund life-saving research.
Many members of our team got up at 6 a.m. to do their part and run 50 miles each. They’re eager to get their hands dirty for a good cause. Rob Woollen, Head of Wellbeing keeps us updated on his progress as shown below.
We’ve now covered 477 miles and have raised £710 so far!
If you would like to donate and support our team in their fight against cancer you can make a donation at Prostate Cancer UK.
