MANDATE is the PA Research Foundation's movement to encourage Australian men to take ownership of their health and rally together to support solution focused prostate cancer research.
We're asking Aussie blokes to muscle up and take responsible actions to keep their most important tool in check - their health. Many diseases are either preventable, or very curable, if detected early which is why it is so important to make an annual date with the GP. Significant others - you are integral to this movement. Encourage your man to get a check-up if something doesn't seem right - it might just save his life.
The funds raised through MANDATE mean that we can continue to fund better diagnostics and treatments for prostate cancer, the second leading cause of cancer related deaths among men.
The prostate cancer research projects MANDATE supports are conducted at the PA Hospital Campus which is home to the Australian Prostate Cancer Centre - Queensland, based at the Translational Research Institute. Your funds will well and truly be supporting our best chances of bringing to life the next great medical discovery, which could save the life of someone you love.
Australian Venue co & The fight against prostate cancer
This fundraising campaign is made possible largely by Australian Venue Co (AVC) Venues in Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia who raise funds during the months of June and July for prostate cancer research at the PA Hospital Campus. The 2019 campaign raised an incredible $199,022 and to date, more than $1.2 million has been raised by Australian Venue Co Venues championing the cause. We thank them for their many years of supporting men in the fight against prostate cancer, many lives have been saved but for some there is still a long way to go.
Your support of this campaign by visiting your local participating AVC venue is vital for us to continue to make ground in the fight against this disease. Please help us continue to fight for all the men in our lives.
