March XMen Challenge – An amazing 7474.46 euro RAISED

March Men’s Health Challenge
€7474.46 RAISED***
Did you follow our “Mens Health Awareness” campaign in March? 10 incredible local men took on health challenges to create awareness around prostate cancer and men’s health in general. Our gratitude is MASSIVE to these men. They ate less, moved more and made other significant lifestyle changes under the guidance of Coach Andy Delderfield. None of this was easy. But ALL of them were committed and raised funds for our charity in the process.
Sponsors, family, friends, neighbors and work colleagues generously supported the lads throughout the month. THE TOTAL THE 10XMEN RAISED WAS A WHOPPING €5117.46. We are so grateful to these men. But that’s not all!
At the end of March, to celebrate their success, The wonderful OK Band held a live music event and picnic in Benissa. It was a fantastic afternoon where the president of Cancer Care Javea was able to thank the men in person. This event raised a further €1195. And, feeling inspired by all that the men had achieved, one of the guests, Pete from Llosa, donated a massive €1000 on the spot on the day!
The owners of Chicos in Sanet y Negrals, in keeping with the men’s health theme, donated every cent from every orange juice they sold in March to Cancer Care Javea. What a fabulous and healthy initiative! A further €162 was contributed to the fundraiser.
Aside from the money raised, the campaign succeeded in creating awareness around men’s health. And THAT is paramount. Jalon Valley FM, Bay Radio, Female Focus, Euro Weekly, Costa Blanca News and many others all highlighted the importance of “GET A CHECK-UP”. Our nursing hotline received many calls and inquiries from men (and women who love their men). We were delighted to be able to help!
Thank you to everyone who participated, supported and contributed to this important campaign. “Men’s Health Matters” and together we succeeded in creating a big REMINDER of that fact. Please look after yourself and if you have ANY questions regarding men’s health or prostate cancer feel free to contact us or visit one of our drop-in clinics. We are here to support you however we can. PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE!
