Rotary ride for Prostate Cancer

Anyone taking part in the ‘Formula Fun’ cycle event on Monday 6th June at Three Sisters Race Circuit will be able to raise money for Prostate Cancer Research at the same time. This follows an arrangement between Wigan Rotary Club and the organisers, Wigan Council and Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles.

The event, now in its seventh year, attracted over 1000 cyclists two years ago, and it is hoped that many more will take part this year. This will help Wigan Rotary Club to raise money for prostate cancer research. Bikes will be available for hire on the day and the track is open from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. This FREE family friendly event opens up the mile long circuit at Three Sisters to cyclists of all ages and abilities with the unique opportunity of cycling around the track and there are plenty of other activities going on for the whole family to enjoy

All the money raised will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Research Unit at The Christie Hospital, and Wigan Rotary President, Gwyneth Millard, said ‘In the UK, one man dies every 45 minutes from prostate cancer and yet only about half as much money is spent on research into the disease as is spent on women’s cancers’.

She is encouraging as many people as possible to come and take part, saying ‘It doesn’t matter how many laps you do and it’s an ideal way for all the family to get involved.’ She continued, ‘there are many people in the Wigan borough who have been affected directly or indirectly by this awful disease and Wigan Rotary Club wants to try to help fund more research’.

So why not bring the whole family along after school or after tea on Monday 6th June for a FREE fun filled cycle fest at Three Sisters Race Circuit!’
