University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity is inviting people of all ages, abilities and
genders to shine a spotlight on men’s health this March by challenging themselves to a
sponsored run or walk to raise vital funds for men’s health services across Dorset.
The annual event, previously hosted by Bournemouth Hospital Charity, will take place at
Bournemouth Pier Approach on Sunday 13 March 2022. Take on a route of
3km, 5km or 10km along the seafront to support men’s health services at the Royal
Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch hospitals. All participants will receive their very own
March for Men t-shirt, and once they cross the finish line, a complimentary drink too.
Since 2014, March for Men has successfully raised more than £250,000 for men’s health
projects in our hospitals enabling the purchase of revolutionary equipment that has
transformed the care of patients.
Kevin Turner, Consultant Urological Surgeon said “Thousands of men from every part of our
community are facing men’s health concerns such as prostate or testicular cancers. March
for Men helps us purchase vital equipment to better diagnose health concerns and improve
treatments. We would not have been able to purchase technology such as the blue light
camera we use to diagnose bladder cancer without March for Men.”
March for Men tickets are £15 for adults (16+) and £8 per child (under 5s go free). Attendees
are also encouraged to raise additional sponsorship to support the charity. All of the routes
are wheelchair friendly.
March for Men is a well-loved local event offering Dorset residents the opportunity to unite
behind efforts to continue to improve men’s health services for every man in our community.
Whether it’s to support a father, son, brother, uncle, grandfather or friend who has received
treatment at UHD or simply to give something back.
