Charity Of The Month - The Mark Gorry Foundation
This October we are focusing on the amazing Mark Gorry Foundation. The charity, which was setup in 2009 by Mark himself aims to increases awareness of testicular cancer encouraging all men to love their balls. Its primary aim is to equipment men with the information they need to check for possible signs and symptoms of testicular cancer, which will hopefully result in early diagnosis.
Mark sadly lost his battle against cancer but the essential work the foundation carries out goes on to help educate and to encourage men to visit their doctor if they have any concerns. From reading Marks story it is clear to see he was passionate about helping others and wanted to spread the word. Remember to keep a look out for the ‘Love Your Balls' campaign. The foundation travels all over the country visiting schools, colleges, universities, offices and sports clubs. It hopes to get people talking about testicular cancer and encourages men to take charge of their health by offering educational workshops. You can organise your very own educational session by contacting the charity directly. Why not help educate your friends and colleagues whist raising money at the same time!
We have worked with these guys on several occasions over recent years, supplying them with display stands and portable exhibition counters for fund raising events. It is our pleasure to have them as our charity of the month and we wish them every success in the future.
