The Big Golf Race, the charity sector’s most significant golf fundraiser, is gearing up for an extraordinary 2024 campaign.
What’s the mission you may ask, well it’s to raise a remarkable target figure of £1.7 million for Prostate Cancer UK through single-day challenges that unite golfers of all ages.
A Hole-in-One Impact
Since its inception in 2020, The Big Golf Race has seen golfers from across the country come together to raise an astonishing £3.4 million for critical life-saving research.
With more than 10,000 challenges undertaken over 36 (Half Marathon), 72 (Marathon), or 100 (Ultra Marathon) holes, it’s clear that the golf community has been teeing up for a cause that hits close to home.
Uniting Golf Clubs for a Critical Cause
The Head of Events and Community Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK emphasises the importance of reaching every golf club and golfer in the United Kingdom. Prostate cancer still affects one in eight men in the UK, making awareness and support essential.
Therefore, by partnering with Sports Impact, known for its extensive network and creative launch ideas, they aim to inspire more remarkable fundraising efforts in the coming months, ultimately saving men’s lives.
Driving Awareness for a Vital Cause
With over 52,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year in the UK, which is equivalent to 144 men every day, The Big Golf Race has become a cornerstone of the charitable calendar.
Sports Impact’s Commitment
