September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

September 2023

Proactive Physiotherapy is again supporting Prostate Cancer research by participating in “The Long Run.”

During the month of September, each member of our team will run, walk or ride 72km to highlight that:

·        men impacted by prostate cancer have a 70 percent higher risk of suicide death.

·        72 percent of men affected by mental health concerns related to their disease will not access the support they need.


Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian men with about 1 in 5 men being diagnosed by the age of 85. Prostate cancer is also a leading cause of cancer-related deaths among Australian men. More than 3,500 Australian men die from prostate cancer each year, which accounts for more hospitalisations than any other type of cancer and costs the health system over $1.35 billion to treat.

You can help us raise funds and raise awareness.
