I’m taking on The Long Ride!

This September, I’m taking part in The Long Ride.

I’ve committed to conquering 720KMs to raise funds and awareness for Aussie men and families fighting prostate cancer.

Please support me by making a tax deductible donation to Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

Together, we can make sure our fathers, brothers, sons, husbands and mates will be there for the long run.

I am Udeni, one of the members of ‘The Long Run’ team members of the PROST! Exercise 4 Prostate Cancer. Inc: PROSTIES. We are raising funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia whilst making the public aware of this Silent Killer.

In Australia, on average, 20,000 men get diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, and about 3,000 get succumbed to it (Corresponding numbers in the US is 200,000 and 33,000). The key to addressing the menace is early diagnosis and taking appropriate action. 

Five years ago, I had to face my Prostate Cancer Challenge and had to deal with it by undergoing radical prostatectomy mid-2015. My recovery journey seems to be going all right so far, which would qualify me to call myself a PC Survivor.

Since my Prostate Cancer Treatment, I had completed ‘ProActive Bike Ride-Perth to Margaret River’ (300 km in two days, averaging 28 km/hr) two years in a row 2015 & 16, and climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in 2016 to raise funds for PCFA.

I love outdoor activities, and so are most of my family. Cycling, Cycle Touring, Grandpa duties, Gardening, Volunteer Work & Reading are my pass-time activities.
