Orchid exists to save men's lives from testicular, prostate and penile cancers through a range of support services, pioneering research and promoting awareness. Over 43,000 men will be diagnosed with a male specific cancer this year; from sons to grandfathers all men face the risk of testicular, prostate or penile cancer.

Balls to Barcelona's fundraising page

Whether you knew him as Chris or Milton, his absence is felt in the homes, outside broadcasts & bars around the world. His battle with testicular cancer was an eye opening account against a disease that effects 2200 new cases each year in the UK. Dispite his determination to fight it, Milton's death came as a huge loss to us all.

Balls to Barcelona's goal is to support Orchid’s education programme which aims to increase awareness of the signs & symptoms of cancer amongst young men. With your support, this will happen in two forms. Firstly a hardy group of cyclists will test their endurance with a 950 mile ride from Barcelona back to London, with the daunting prospect of tackling some of the most iconic climbs of the Pyrennes. Secondly, for those who cannot commit to 11 days in the saddle, we're encouraging as many riders as possible to join in 'The Last Leg'. An undulating 70 plus mile coarse from Portsmouth to London and an undertaking not to be taken lightly. Both variations represent great challenges that require dedication,  committment and suffering.

43,000 Miltons will be diagnosed with a male specific cancer in the UK this year alone. So please show your support, make a donation & make the pain worth it!

Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
