After a successful event in 2010, Pants in the Park, sponsored by healthcare provider Simplyhealth, is returning to Regents Park in London on Sunday 25 June 2011. Families are being encouraged to run, skip or jog their way around the course in their colourful pants to raise awareness and funds to beat prostate disease.
Emma Malcolm, Chief Executive of Prostate Action, said: 'There's going to be more Londoners and more pants than ever, as well as fun fitness warm ups, face painting and prizes for the best decorated pants. So come along and wear your pants with pride to help us raise funds and awareness to beat prostate disease.'
Pants in the Park will be open for people to register from 10am on the day with the warm up taking place before the race starts at 11am. At 12 noon there will be prizes for the best decorated pants awarded.
One in two men will be affected by prostate disease at some stage in their lives and 37,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. Prostate Action funds research and education to beat all prostate diseases. By funding the best research and educating GPs, practice nurses, district nurses and newly qualified urologists, Prostate Action aims to give all men a better chance of beating prostate disease.
There are also two further Pants in the Park events this summer, taking place in Leeds and Andover. Visit http://www.prostateaction.org.uk/pantsinthepark for more information and to sign up today.
