Welcome to Prostate Cymru


Swansea City AFC Foundation is excited to announce its first charity bike ride raising funds for the Foundation’s health projects and to help tackle prostate cancer. 

Working in partnership with Prostate Cymru and Maggie’s Cancer Care, the Foundation aims to raise awareness of prostate cancer and provide support to families recovering from the disease. The Swans Cycle Challenge will become an annual event raising much needed funds for a local cause each year. 

Swansea City AFC Foundation aim to raise £25,000 that will allow the Foundation to plan and host a prostate cancer testing event at the Swansea.com Stadium in partnership with the Barry Kilby Prostate Cancer Appeal, which has held events at football clubs across the UK. 

In Wales prostate cancer affects one in eight men, and when there is a family history of the disease the risk increases to one in three, which makes it likely that all Swans fans know someone affected by the disease. Catching prostate cancer early drastically raises chances of survival, making testing events such as these crucial for saving lives.

The route will be see riders travel more than 150 miles over two days, starting at the home of West Bromwich Albion, The Hawthorns, and finishing at the Swansea.com Stadium ahead of the final Championship fixture of the 2022-23 season between the Swans and West Brom at the Swansea.com Stadium.

Riders will depart from The Hawthorns on Friday May 5, cycling to Hereford where they will stay overnight. On Saturday May 6 riders will cycle from Hereford to the Swansea.com Stadium. All participants will then have the opportunity to attend the Swansea City vs West Bromwich Albion fixture on Monday May 8 taking part in a lap of honour around the pitch prior to kick-off to celebrate the achievement.

Spaces are limited to 50, with a registration fee of £100 and a commitment to raise a minimum of £500 in sponsorship. Sponsorship funds will be collected via Just Giving. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Click here to sign up!
