Chairman’s Statement

 
 
 
 
 

The Male Bag Foundation Ltd is focused firmly on men’s health:
Mission Statement:
To promote “awareness of, research into and equipment purchase to fight prostate cancer, through a not for profit foundation!”

Whilst capturing the spirit of adventure through an annual / bi-annual ride plus other events, the Male Bag Foundation Ltd raises awareness and funds for the fight against this insidious disease – a disease that takes the lives of 9 men every day. More than 20,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in Australia this year, and around 3,300 will lose their life to the disease. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (2017) Prostate Cancer is the most common internal cancer in Australian men and is the second leading cause of death in Australian males!

Although prostate cancer might be a male-only disease, the impact of a diagnosis is widespread, affecting not only Australian men, but their partners, families and the wider community. The Foundation will help fill a void in many families’ lives during a most difficult time.
