Why run the Hackney Half Marathon for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre?

At PCRC, we focus on researching advanced prostate cancer. This is because prostate cancer is treatable when it is confined to the prostate, but once it spreads to other parts of the body, it becomes incurable and dangerous. We urgently need better treatments for men with this life-threatening disease, and we can only do that by funding excellent, ground-breaking research. Every pound that you raise will help us to achieve our vision of a better future for men with prostate cancer. You can help us use science to turn hope into reality.
