Pompey in the Community Walking Footballers win Men and Cancer a promotion.

Walking away from cancer

The Portsmouth team, many of whom have had prostate cancer, wanted to pay tribute to both the Men's Health Forum's manual and the benefits of walking football for men with cancer:

  • 'Walking Football has given me the Mental & Physical strength to help tackle my Prostate Cancer’
  • 'The Camaraderie, banter, exercise and fun being with my Walking Football buddies has put my Prostate Cancer away in the background.'
  • 'The first thing on my mind when I wake up on my Walking Football days is not my Prostate Cancer but looking forward to that days session, always good fun and lots of banter.'

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
