March for every man in your community by supporting men’s health projects

January 24, 2024

Join University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity on Saturday 9 March 2024 to walk along the Bournemouth promenade to support every dad, brother, uncle and man you know in your local community. Participants can take part in a fun 5k or 10k along the beautiful seafront from Bournemouth Pier to Southbourne. Starting at 10am you can choose to walk, run or get involved in any way that suits you best.

Fundraising Officer, Amy Beauchamp says “We are really looking forward to celebrating our 10th March for Men event this year. The support from the local community really makes a difference to our hospitals and it is a great event if you enjoy walking or running. It’s also a perfect opportunity for those taking part in the Couch to 5k to celebrate the end of their training and run for a worthwhile cause with us.”

“As we are celebrating 10 years of this much-loved event and with the support of Oak Services who are sponsoring this event, we are hoping to make it our biggest and best one yet. Please don’t miss out!”

Come together with friends and family to help fund revolutionary equipment that is above and beyond NHS funding. This year, we’re hoping we can help fund a piece of equipment that will improve the diagnosis and treatment of ureter and kidney cancers and benign conditions. The equipment would significantly improve cancer diagnosis rates and treatment.

Over the last 10 years, March for Men has raised nearly £170,000 for Urology at University Hospitals Dorset.

Consultant Urological Surgeon, Kevin Turner says: “We’ve purchased a wide range of equipment through the funds raised at March for Men. The funds have helped us improve our surgical robotics, improve the diagnostics and treatment of bladder cancer, record and analyse images for surgical training techniques and improvements, and enhance treatment of kidney stones, improving recovery times.”

With just 6 weeks to go, please sign up today to help support men’s health projects in your local community.
