England Beach Soccer Says Balls To Cancer!
The England Beach Soccer National Team has today announced that their nominated charity is Balls To Cancer.
Speaking today Head Coach terry Bowes said “We’re really pleased to be involved with such a great charity, everyone is aware of Think Pink and we hope that we can help raise the profile of Blue Friday and other great charity events on behalf of Balls to Cancer”.
Balls to Cancer hopes to make both men & women aware of the dangers of male oriented cancer and to help men, help themselves.
Secondly they want to open a male only contact point for men, boys who have been diagnosed with cancer or are worried about cancer and their families.
Thirdly they are funding an education programme for teenagers to help them understand and take away the taboo of talking about testicular cancer and asking for help.
200,000 men are diagnosed a year with cancer in the UK, killing 10 men an hour.
The first Blue Friday is this Friday 7th June and everyone is urged to wear something blue in support of the cause.
The England team will be holding sporting events throughout the year on behalf of the charity.
