Club Menangle has again joined forces with Harness Racing NSW and Allied Express to run the Racing for Prostate Cancer campaign.

The twin aim of the campaign will be raising funds and awareness for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. 

Throughout November, Club Menangle will hold seven race meetings, and each partner will donate $400 for every win recorded by a horse carrying saddlecloth Number 4.

The driver of each horse wearing the Number 4 saddlecloth will also wear the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia silks.

Each year, about 25,000 Australian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer, making it the most commonly diagnosed cancer for men in the country – more than 3700 Australian men die from the disease each year. 

However, about 250,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer are alive today, with prostate cancer having one of the highest survival rates of any cancer, with 95 percent of men likely to survive five years or more after diagnosis.

“Our club is again proud to be raising funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia in partnership with Harness Racing NSW and Allied Express just like we did in 2022,’’ says Club Menangle chief executive officer Bruce Christison.

“We are looking forward to another successful campaign and hopefully improving on our final tally of eight wins from the previous year.’’

Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia chief executive Anne Savage thanked the club for their support.

“The campaign promises to be a great event in every way, raising vital funds and awareness for the one in five men in the local community who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime,’’ she said.

“We’re tremendously proud to partner with Club Menangle to drive home our message about early detection and support.’’

On Saturday, November 25, Club Menangle will host the second edition of Racing for Prostate Cancer dinner (pictured above), an evening of excitement and purpose to unite for a cause that affects many, raising awareness and funds for research and support.

Guests will be treated to a delicious three-course set menu, live harness racing and guest speakers, including Channel 7’s Michelle Bishop.
