  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to raise awareness and educate the population on the issues of testicular cancer by associating with sports as a primary medium of branding, and to provide access to resources, information and support to those concerned or directly affected by testicular cancer.

    Awareness of testicular cancer by making information available and easily accessible

    Education education on how to identify potential problems at an early stage and what to do next if you are worried.

    Support resources for those individuals already affected and the wider family where testicular cancer has had an impact.

    We use both social and traditional media at a local and national level to raise awareness about testicular cancer. Our brand has been specifically developed to engage with our target population of males in the 12-45 age group (where testicular cancer is most prevalent) and has been well received. It aims to cut through the stigma of talking about testicular cancer, by using sport and humour to make the message stick.
