Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and Prostate Cancer
Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) is a broad based community organisation and the peak national body for prostate cancer research in Australia. The Foundation is dedicated to reducing the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men, their partners and families recognising the diversity of the Australian community.
Why is this research so important?
- 3,300 Australian men a year die from prostate cancer. That is 9 a day
- 20,000 Australian men a year receive a new diagnosis. That is 54 a day
- In early stages of prostate cancer there may be no symptoms
- One in 7 blokes will be affected by prostate cancer
- Around 92% of men will be alive 5 years after a diagnosis of prostate cancer – this is largely as a result of medical research
Outback 4WD Adventure – How We Started
Ross Alexander was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2013. He joined the NSW Prostate Cancer Foundation Board in 2015 to support the work of the Foundation and to “give a bit back”. Ross believes that his survival today is the result of the advances in medical research, science and the awareness campaigns that the Foundation funds and promotes today.
In the past 30 years Ross has supported many charity car rallies as an entrant and during this 30 years has raised in excess of $300,000 personally. With financial funding being the most important requirement of the Prostate Cancer Foundation today, in 2017 Ross sought the help of Peter Fehon (Charity Car Events, owner and originator) and Vic Widman (Great Divide Tours) to run a Outback 4WD Adventure and raise funds for Prostate Cancer medical research.
PETER FEHON handles all the administration, bookings, daily organization and running of the event as Event Director.
VIC WIDMAN as Route Director has planned our route and as one of Australia’s leading 4WD driving training experts will be available to assist and guide entrants on the adventure.
Our first Rally in 2018 raised a massive $200,000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation
