PROSTATE1000 is a philanthropic organisation, committed to helping spread awareness of the scourge of prostate cancer, and to raising funds for financing research into finding a cure. The organisation was founded in 2009 by Gideon Lang-Laddie.
PROSTATE1000 raises awareness and funds for prostate cancer research, by focusing on and organising sponsored biking challenges. In May of 2019 a team of PROSTATE1000 members will cycle 600miles, ascending 26,300ft each, in 6 days, cycling from Paris to Monte Carlo.
PROSTATE1000 has raised approximately $150,000 for prostate cancer research, from totally self-funded and sponsored, endurance cycling challenges since its founding in 2009. Every penny raised has gone directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and to Prostate Cancer UK.
