2022 Annual Gala Dinner
Friday 29th April 2022 – Studley Grounds Kew

Date: 13/05/2022 12:00 am

On Friday 29th April we held the Male Bag Foundation annual dinner at Studley Grounds. In spite of the weather, which provided a drenching downpour just as everyone was arriving it was a brilliant night shared by foundation members and friends, sponsors and representatives from recipient hospitals. We were very fortunate to have the services of Sam Pang to run the night.

One highlight was Sam’s discussion with Shepparton’s prostate cancer nurse and their urologist. Their talk gave everyone a great understanding of what having a transperineal prostate biopsy machine at their hospital meant for men in their local area.

Building on Success

The Male Bag Ride 2018 followed in the tread marks of our 2013 trans-Australian ride from Perth to Melbourne, a ride in Tasmania, followed by rides in Gippsland and the Murray River and District. To date we have raised over $800,000
for research and specialist equipment and services for regional centres including Ballarat, Bairnsdale, Echuca and Bendigo.

Our 2018 Mission

In 2018 our donations will be directed to improved prostate services in regional NSW centres. We have set a fund-raising target of $300,000 so we can supply biopsy machines to regional centres. But we want to raise more and improve the lives of patients, families and communities.

5km and 10km  Walk

The Male Bag Foundation is proud and excited to announce the first Male Bag March, a walk around the Yarra Bend Park, Melbourne`s own inner city bush land. Yarra Bend Park is more than 260 hectares of wild and varied park lands and bush. As soon as you commence this walk you will be immersed in nature as you follow this remarkable trail beside the twist and turns of the mighty Yarra River, over the scenic foot bridges, throughout the eucalypt bushlands, past colonies fruit bats and into pockets of park land you never knew existed. As this is not a race we would encourage all family members to join in and support the wonderful cause.  After all Prostate Cancer remains the number one men`s health issue in Australia today, approximately 20,000 men will be diagnosed each year and sadly over 3000 men will succumb to the disease annually.

Please forward this invitation to anyone that may be interested
