Management and behind the scenes staff are helping to raise money for Prostate Cancer during the month of November.
During the month of November, members of the management team, backroom staff, as well as chairman Darragh MacAnthony will be raising money for Prostate Cancer by either running 10k, 5k or 3k a day, or cycling either 25k, 15k or 10k a day.
Led by manager Grant McCann, the management team includes assistant manager Cliff Byrne, first team coach Dale Tonge and Goalkeeping Coach Mark Tyler, while the Media and Marketing department, which includes photographer Joe Dent and Videographer Lewis Hargreaves, are also involved.
Over £6,000 has already been raised by the PUFC Prostate United team, with the challenge every day during the month of November. We will be keeping supporters up to date of the progress via the club website and Twitter with a video from a participant taking place every day.
Nicola Tallett, Director of Fundraising and Supporter Engagement at Prostate Cancer UK said: “Prostate United has really captured the imagination over the years, and it’s been fantastic to see the football family coming together again in support of men affected by prostate cancer and their families.
“To run or cycle every day for a month is no mean feat – especially considering the busy schedules of their clubs - so we’re incredibly grateful for the support of the Prostate United team.
"The funds raised by Peterborough United and every club and individual involved will be invested into research into better tests and treatments to stop prostate cancer being a killer. We thank Peterborough United for their wonderful support and wish them all the best for November.”
