On Sunday 17th May 2020, the Weymouth and Portland Lions Club will be holding a “March for Men” along Weymouth seafront as part of a nationwide series of marches being organised by the Prostate Cancer UK charity and by groups and individuals
The objective of this event is to raise much needed funds, to raise awareness of prostate cancer and to help save the lives of men. It will be a family event, it will not be competitive, and marchers will have the option of turning around at three different locations, depending on how far they wish to walk: the Pier Bandstand, the Groyne (opposite Sea Life) or the Oasis Café at the end of Preston Beach Road.
It will begin at 9.45 am at the southern end of Weymouth Esplanade, opposite Alexandra Gardens and it will be preceded by check-in and a warm-up on Weymouth beach at 9.30 am.
The entry fee will be £10 for an adult, to include a T-shirt, and £6 for a child (16 and under), which will be for the T-shirt and will include a £1 nominal admin fee.
Marchers are encouraged to find their own individual sponsors and to pass all monies raised to the Weymouth and Portland Lions Club for onward transmission to the Prostate Cancer UK Charity.
Online registration will remain open until Saturday 16th May 2020.
Check-in on the day will take place in a Lions gazebo on the beach. There will also be an opportunity to register on the beach on the day, but participants are advised to register online in advance.
