At The Football League HQ this morning, comedian Bill Bailey was unveiled as the manager of Men United – a unique team created by Britain’s foremost male health charity Prostate Cancer UK.
“We can win this!” was his message as Prostate Cancer UK launched the fantastic Men United campaign, created to raise awareness and help gather information of the UK public’s understanding of the disease.
The charity is challenging the public by asking ‘What do you know about prostate cancer?’ in a bid to find out how clued up people are. They will use the anonymised answers and statistics from a quick-fire, five-question test to help them plan future awareness campaigns and media stories.
Owen Sharp, chief executive of Prostate Cancer UK said: “Put bluntly, it’s time for men in the UK to man up and take control of their own health. We’re asking men to sign up to Men United and check their knowledge of prostate cancer in our short online test. Make sure every man you know – family, friends, colleagues – takes this test. When it comes to prostate cancer, information is power.”
As an added bonus, building merchants, Keyline will donate 50p for every person who completes the test and joins Men United (to a maximum value of £25,000).
To take the test, just answer the five questions and join Men United.
